Winter Family STEM Connections.
Families and STEM are a great combination to promote creating, tinkering, and problem solving. We have organized several STEM workshops for families at a major museum and they were huge hits! We have developed a packet of three engineering challenges for winter to send home each month as school community outreach activities. Each challenge worksheet has two sides: one side for the challenge with 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 structural engineering, physical science, and materials engineering. They use simple materials and provide an opportunity for an exploration of the engineering design process. It has the following challenges:
Challenge #1 What’s on Your Head?
Challenge #2 Sugar Cube Architecture
Challenge 3# The Family Robot Helper
