This is a fun STEM activity that I created for my students to do in February during Black History Month. It is based on the inventor, Lonnie G. Johnson, who invented a water gun called a Super Shooter. We aren't allowed to use water guns at school, but there isn't a rule against snowball shooters....and snow is just frozen water...right?!

My kids really enjoyed this STEM activity. We had marshmallows flying around the room, and students were busy counting unifix cubes to see how far their marshmallow flew! You can also choose to use rulers instead of unifix cubes to measure the distance your marshmallows fly.
I did three straight weeks of snowmen S.T.E.M. activities this past winter. Wow! Did we have fun! To see the other 2 snowmen STEMs check them out here:
