    Are you ready for some STEM Challenges that are just pure fun? Students will build and experiment with catapults and then compete.

    STEM activities are really just fun for kids! These three challenges are some of our favorites and I’m sure they will be yours, too! Give your students some simple directions, supplies, and the chance to explore and they will just jump right in! Even though these are creative ways to explore your kids will still be thinking critically without knowing it, talking and collaborating, and problem-solving. It is total engagement!

    These three STEM challenges will have your students exploring and creating with a variety of materials.

    In Bubbles your students will be exploring with a bubble solution. The Exploration or Imagining stage of the process includes trying to create bubbles in specific ways and learning how to manipulate the bubble solution. The design challenge takes the fun one step further as students create a way to make the largest or most unusual bubbles they can!

    Chromatography your students will be thinking about the many colors that mix together to create new shades. Students will experiment with water soluble markers and filter paper to see the separation of the color mixtures in the marker ink. It’s a fun activity with simple supplies and can be extended in many ways.

    Catapults your students construct a working catapult using simple and inexpensive supplies. Once the catapults are built students are challenged to use their devices to complete several tasks. The tasks include firing a projectile (pom-pom) the greatest distance, firing at a target, and firing over an obstacle. The catapults are easy to build, easy to modify, and great fun! This packet will take at least two class sessions to complete.

    Each challenge includes a scoring rubric and all forms are editable.

    You will need additional materials for use of these packages.

    • For Bubbles you will need: dish-washing liquid, glycerin, small containers (like aluminum pans), plastic lids to containers, straws, various items to use in the design challenge (like pipe cleaners, washers, rubber bands, plastic canvas, screen, binder rings, paper clips, cups), and lots of towels.
    • For Chromatography you will need: coffee filters, markers in many colors, several different brands of black markers, water droppers, bowls, and lots of paper towels!
    • For Catapults you will need: craft sticks, rubber bands, items to launch (Ideas: pom-poms, mini marshmallows, foam balls) and wooden blocks (optional).

    For each package you will receive: a lesson guide that provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a great experience; a page of Helpful Hints that gives ideas of specific things to think about while using this package; lab sheets; sample answer sheets from students; photos to help in your use of the challenges; and a page of Extensions that will give you ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers.

    This set is a combination of three STEM challenges. If you prefer the packages may be purchased separately.

    The three challenges are also available in a larger bundles:STEM Challenges 6-Pack
