Families and STEM are a great combination to promote creating, tinkering, and problem solving. We have developed a FREEBIE packet of three engineering challenges for summer to send home as school community outreach activities. Each challenge worksheet has two sides: one side for the challenge and enrichment ideas and the other side for planning and reflections. An optional explanation letter for parents is also included for your use.
The three challenges focus on materials engineering, physical science and structural engineering. They use simple materials and provide an opportunity for an exploration of the engineering design process.
Challenge #1 Summer Sounds
Challenge #2 Sneaker Creations
Challenge #3 Sprinkler Fantasy
We have five family packets – Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer and a discounted bundle that are all available now in our store.
Your students and families might also enjoy STEM Sparks Task Cards – perfect for a Maker Station or an Enrichment Center.
We currently have four different STEM Sparks packets available.
