Description

Students love this real-life STEM Challenge about building a sailboat! The engineering includes building a sturdy platform and attaching the sail. Add some races to the challenge and your students will be cheering loudly! A highly engaging project!

Note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles!

If you have tried a STEM challenge that involves boat building, this new version will be loved by your students just as much.

What is the challenge?

This STEM challenge will have your students designing and building a boat using only a few supplies. The real trick is that the boat must sail when wind is added. Finally, the boat will be tested for its ability to hold weight. Throughout the challenge, students will test for floating ability, then sailing, and then holding weight. They will also modify whenever they find their boats taking on water! It’s a very competitive activity but filled with collaborative opportunities and creative designing.

What is your prep?

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes aluminum foil, copy paper, straws, craft sticks, tape, straws, craft foam, cardboard pieces, water containers, towels, and a fan.

The product specifically contains;

  • Cover
  • Teacher Overview
  • Materials and Prep for 2 versions
  • 4 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions
  • 4 pages of photos
  • 2 versions of the lab sheet set with answer samples
  • Scoring rubric
  • Terms of Use page
  • Teacher directions are jam-packed with tips for you
  • And there is more! All forms are provided in an editable format!
