Splash! It’s time for a water slide challenge! Here’s the first challenge of a summer fun STEM series to get through those summer months or summer camps. But, these challenges work all year round!

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

In this challenge, students will be using materials to plan a design and then construct a working water slide that will transport a toy figure down the slide- without leaking water. The main materials for the slide part are not waterproof so students will have to plan ahead for how to line their slide so it won’t spill water. The slide must also resemble a slide, have a turn in it, and have an access point- like a ladder. Students will use the steps of the Engineering Design Process as you follow the pages of detailed and labeled teacher directions pages.

This challenge is from my STEM by the Month collection.

★You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes straws, pipe cleaners, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, waxed paper, bowls, masking tape, cardboard tubes, paper towels, cups, and toy figures.

The package specifically includes:

  • Cover
  • Teacher background
  • Materials and preparation page
  • 4 pages of teacher directions
  • Constraints list
  • 4 pages of photographs
  • Extra Hints page
  • Student lab sheet –with sample answers
  • Scoring rubric
  • Terms of Use page
  • All forms are provided in an editable format.
  • The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1 class session (1 hour) to complete.

This challenge works perfectly with two more summer fun challenges!
