PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: With restricted supplies – only a dozen of each – can you build a tower? It’s the second of three Designing with Dozens challenges!

*** Please note: This lesson is available in a combination package.

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process in this challenge and it is amazing to watch them create a tower and use the supplies in the best way possible. They will improve the design constantly and will creatively get their towers to stand up and be measured. How tall can you build this tower? How can you use the small amount of tape effectively? Which style of tower will work best- tall and straight or one with support legs?

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, 2 versions of task constraints, a 2-page lab sheet with answer key, a 1-page lab sheet with sample answers, a Terms of Use page, and a Credits page.

Supplies needed in addition to this package include: 5 x 8 index cards, tape, and scissors.

This index card tower challenge is similar to this challenge:
STEM Challenge: Build a Tower with Index Cards
The two tower sets would work perfectly together as they do have different constraints!

This challenge works perfectly with two other Designing with Dozens challenges:
STEM Challenge Designing with Dozens: Straw Towers
STEM Challenge Designing with Dozens: Foil Towers
