PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

***********************PLEASE READ**********************************
If you have purchased one of my other Engineering Design Challenges, you may purchase this product. The pages of the booklet with the steps are omitted, since they are the same regardless of the challenge. You will save $2 by purchasing this add-on pack instead of the full product. Just use the pages from the other product, and add on the new cover (included) for this challenge! Again, this does NOT include the booklet with the steps, so if you have not purchased one of my other engineering design challenges, please do not purchase this product! Thanks!
****************************************************************************
Engineering Challenge #2: I am so excited to share my second Engineering Design Challenge! This STEM activity provides a great introduction to the Engineering Design Process, and includes hands-on fun for your budding structural engineers. 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)
Follow-up Activity (1 page)
Performance Rubric (1 page)
Junior Engineer Certificates of Completion (color and black and white both included)
