Save more than 33% from individual purchases with this collection of popular STEM lessons! Combine engineering, science, and math in meaningful, hands-on activities and lessons in your classroom.
I use these STEM lessons with my 3-5 GATE groups, but they are suitable and adaptable up through 7th grade. Younger kids will need more guidance, and older kids will find plenty of challenge in these STEM projects.

You get the following:
Snap N' Shoot Soccer -- Students build a goal and "snapper" to shoot a marshmallow soccer ball past fierce-looking goalies while learning about the relationship between fractions, percentages, and probabilities.
Collapsible Hoop and Launcher Game -- The basketball hoop folds flat and is removed from a solid base. The catapult launcher is portable as students are challenged to shoot from different spots on the floor.
Simple Machines and More -- Students build and test their machines like engineers, calculating the percentage of work saved using simple machines. Don't take your teacher's word for it, test them with data!
Iditarod Sled Challenge -- Can students construct an efficient miniature sled and pass the tests of the arctic? Students learn about friction and other physical properties.
Antarctic Research Station -- Students build a model of the Halley IV Antarctic Research Station, complete with adjustable skids. What kid isn't intrigued by Antarctica?
