PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: Boat-Building STEM Activity (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math):

STEM activities and challenges are great for developing critical-thinking, teamwork, design, analysis, innovation, and other skills important for young scientists, mathematicians, engineers and all other students as well.

STEM activities of this nature encouraged me to become an engineer, and I have reviewed and developed hundreds of STEM challenges with elementary teachers to select those that teach valuable scientific principles without requiring a teacher to take out a loan to purchase expensive supplies that contribute little to the educational process. We have still included a list of optional supplies if you feel the need to spend $20 every time you teach a STEM activity, but the typical activity is free, requiring only school-supplied items and little to no teacher preparation.

Specifically, this boat-building activity contains inherent lessons on buoyancy, ship stability and weight distribution, materials science, and other subtle elements of engineering and chemistry. It is valuable as a lesson all by itself, but it also pairs well with a formal lesson on any of these topics.

With this product, you get a sheet of teacher instructions, a sheet of student instructions, and a two-page (I print them front and back on a single sheet) design sheet that guides students through the design process and spurs creativity by asking thought-provoking questions that engineers answer on a daily basis.

Whether you’re teaching a class of young scientists or you just want to want a regular class of students to enjoy an opportunity to collaborate in friendly competition on a project everyone will love, this STEM challenge will meet your need perfectly.
