Welcome to a new “spin” on STEM! You will need to have a paper clip for each group in order to use the spinners as well as the basic supplies needed:
index cards copy paper straws
pasta noodles craft sticks masking tape
glue scissors tape measure
weights (books or pop cans work well)
Students can spin choices for their group, or you can spin choices for the whole class. Either way, the spinners add an element of excitement and unexpectedness to the typical STEM Challenge!
This pack includes the three spinners, background information about different types of bridges, lab sheets, and teacher directions.
