Product Description
STEM Challenges: Do your students love building towers like mine do? This is the package for you! Here’s the feature with this set: Each tower must hold something aloft! And, just to make it even more fun, each challenge has its own special twist!

Please note: This package contains three challenges. Each may be purchased separately.

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for each challenge. The packages contain step-by-step procedures for the teacher that are clearly marked with the Design Process steps. The accompanying lab sheets for students are also marked. Students will plan with teammates as they create the best design possible. Of course, constant improvements take place as students try their designs.

Some specifics about each design challenge:
In Tennis Ball Towers students will use task given supplies to design and build a tower. The tower must support a tennis ball at a specific height off the table. The twist of this challenge is that students must find a way to use all the supplies.

Materials you will need in addition to this package include: straws, craft sticks, coffee stir sticks, tennis balls, masking tape, string, and a container for each group’s supplies.

In Satellite Towers students will build a tower that will hold a satellite dish aloft. The tower does not need to be a specific height, but must hold the dish aloft and the satellite dish must resemble one. Also, the satellite dish must rotate in some way in order to be moved to receive a “signal”. Here’s the twist: Each group will be divided into two parts. One part will receive the supplies for the satellite dish while the other part will receive the supplies for the tower. At some point the two teams within the group will have to work together to assemble the entire structure. It’s a fabulous feat of collaboration!

Materials needed in addition to this package include: Cups - plastic or Styrofoam, Plastic lids for the cup or similar round flat objects, Flat Styrofoam tray or bowl, Rubber bands, Pipe cleaners, Masking tape, Straws, and Craft Sticks.

In Water Towers students will build a tower that will hold a cup of water aloft. The tower must be a specific height and the water container must rest at the top, but unrestrained. When the tower is stable, water is added and the tower must remain standing for a specified amount of time. And, just to make this activity a little more interesting, here’s the twist: we added a budget feature to building the tower. Students must “shop” for their supplies using a price list and they must stay within the budget constraints you set!

Materials you will need in addition to this package include: 5-6 different items to test for absorbency (like cotton balls and sponges), Styrofoam cups, Graduated cylinders, Dishpans or aluminum trays, Stopwatches, Craft sticks, Straws, Paper clips, Rubber bands, and Masking tape. Optional building materials include sand, modeling dough, or clay.

Also, each challenge includes a scoring rubric and editable forms!

Check the individual listing for each package for more information.
