    Description

    This is a set of three STEM Challenges that all have something to do with summer time fun! It’s the Summer Fun Series! These challenges are called summer fun, but all three can easily be completed at any time of year! Get ready for roller coasters, Ferris wheels, and water slides!

    This package contains three challenges. Each may be purchased separately. Just click on the titles.

    What are the challenges?

    In Roller Coasters students have specific supplies and must design and construct a roller coaster model. They must work together and complete the challenge within a time limit. They will work and re-work the curves of their designs and try over and over to make the coasters perform well. It is truly exciting to watch them perfect their models and get ready to test their coasters. This experience will take two to three class sessions to complete. Also, please note that this package is designed for elementary school-age students. The complex physics and geometry of upper-level science is not part of this package. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes foam tubes, masking tape, and marbles.

    In Ferris Wheel students will be using craft sticks and glue to make a spinning Ferris Wheel. The wheel has two sides and students must be diligent in making the sides match in size. In addition, the two sides must be joined together and space left in the centers to add a central turning rod or axle. Add making a frame to hold the wheel aloft and you have a truly spectacular STEM challenge. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes craft sticks, dowel sticks (3/16 to 1/4 inch diameter), hot glue guns and glue, and masking tape.

    In Water Slides 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. 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.

    Each challenge also includes a scoring rubric and all forms are editable!

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