STEM Engineering Challenge

Teamwork Activity!

Save Sam with STEM!

With a gummy worm, gummy lifesaver, a cup, and a paperclip, students will work in teams of two to solve a STEM challenge.

Based on a popular STEM activity, we have added the engineering design process to this free activity.

Perfect for an introduction to engineering in grades k-6 or a staff workshop.

Teaches are saying:

"This activity was so fun! I thought some of my first graders would get frustrated but they actually had a ball while working together on this engaging STEM lesson."

"My students LOVED this activity. It was one of their favorites for the year. Thank you!"
