Product Description
This STEM activity provides a great introduction to the Engineering Design Process and includes hands-on fun for your budding structural engineers. This challenge will have them designing and constructing a power transmission tower.b These challenges use common items you likely already have in your classroom or can easily obtain.

Materials needed for this challenge: pipe cleaners (chenille stems), ~55 per team (or student if you do this as individual projects), tape measure, 4 straws per team, and a stop watch or timer (a clock would be fine too).

There are duplicate copies of 3 pages to include metric measurements, and alternate spelling of favorite (favourite).

What's Included:
Designing a Power Transmission Tower Overview (2 pages)
Intro to Engineering for Elementary Students (teacher guide to facilitate the discussion)
Detailed preparation suggestions to plan for before, during, and after the challenge (1 page)
Warm-up Activity (1 page)
Engineering Design Challenge overview (1 page)
Testing data sheet (1 page)
Engineering Design Challenge Book (10 pages, takes you through each phase of the EDP)
Engineering Design Challenge Worksheets (2 pages, same as booklet but for upper grades or to save paper print front/back)
Follow-up Activity (1 page)
Performance Rubric (1 page)
Junior Engineer Certificates of Completion (color and black and white both included)

Please Note: You do not have to purchase these engineering design challenges in order. They are all self-contained. If you purchase this one first, you can purchase any of the other add on packs (see below) for more challenges!
