STEM Engineering Challenge for Autumn and Halloween !
Let’s add a little engineering to the harvest party tradition of bobbing for apples. We can use our STEM skills to build devices that keep our faces out of the water. With a tub of water, ten small apples and a bag of easy to find materials for each group, we can have a creative activity that encourages “brain push ups”.
This lesson was updated on 9-26-2017 and the following items are now included :
Bobbing for Apples Informative Text
Bobbing for Apples with STEM Engineering Activity (7 pages)
Engineering Process Poster
Teacher notes (3 pages)
"One of the best design challenges I have purchased. Definitely worth the money. Kids worked in partners. They had a chance to test their designs in the sink with an apple and then redesign if necessary. We did the final test in a large tub of water. Kids are still talking about this challenge two months later. Thank you!” Jasmine
Another fun fall activity is our Mini-Punkin’ Chuckin’ activity
