Vivify STEM presents Launchpad: A Mission to Mars
Through interactive sessions, Launchpad students become a team of astronauts challenged to complete 10 missions centered around a Journey to Mars. Each week, students will read a message from Astronaut Alex, who will introduce the activity, provide background context, and connect to a STEM career. Students will then engage in hands-on activities centered around the engineering design process.
35 educators have implemented Launchpad with over 500 students in grades 4th - 8th!
* Intro to STEM Education
* 10 STEM Missions following a storyline
* Supply list with links
* Alignment to NGSS and CCSS Math
* Step-by-step teacher guide with photos
* Student mission sheets
What is STEM?
STEM challenges are an engaging way to incorporate the engineering design process into your classroom or afterschool program! These hands-on activities allow students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect science topics to real-world applications. The teacher will provide the structure to the project, but students will take an active role in designing and building their own balloon rocket device. Learn more here: Not All STEM is Equal
