    Description

    More and more I am asked for STEM challenges that can be put together quickly with easy materials. For this reason, these three new challenges were born- all easy prep and easy materials. The challenges feature the easiest of all materials- straws!

    Please note: This package contains three challenges. Each may be purchased separately. Just click on the titles! This bundle is also available in larger combos!

    STEM 6-Pack Bundle Easy Supplies 2

    Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for each challenge. The packages contain step-by-step procedures for the teacher that are clearly marked with the Design Process steps. The included lab sheets for students are also marked. Students will plan independently and then with teammates to create the best solution to the design challenge.

    What are the challenges?

    Suspended Cups Tower

    Students will design and build a tower that has some specific rules about two items- cups! The cups have constraints about their height and how close they can be to one another. One of the main building materials is straws and there are a few other items. This challenge is purely a problem solving one with no particular scenario for the construction task. It’s just a fun one! This would make a perfect challenge for STEM Friday, a reward for your class, an administrator visit to your classroom, or a task to be left with a sub! You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes Straws, Card stock paper, Foil, String, Pipe cleaners, Styrofoam cups, and Masking tape.

    Simple Egg Drop

    Students will use straws, tape, some cushioning materials, and some creative thinking to make a very simple egg drop device. This will not be a drop made from a high place, but only from a 3-foot height. Students will still have to be very clever in the design since the egg cannot pop out or hit the floor too hard. We want those eggs to survive even if it is a little fall. This is a great little variation of an egg drop that can be completed in one class session! You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes Straws, Plastic eggs (optional), Weights, Masking tape, Tissue paper, Eggs, and Bubble wrap.

    Bridges with Straws

    Students will have images of four kinds of bridges, a bunch of straws, some tape, and the challenge of building the bridge and being creative in using the one material they have! Can it be done? Of course, kids will be superb in their designs, their creative use of the straws, and the extras they add to their structures. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes Straws, Masking tape, String, Small containers, and Pennies (or weights).

    In addition, each challenge has a scoring rubric and a file with forms in an editable format.

    This set is a combination of three STEM Challenges. If you prefer they may be purchased separately:
