STEM activity / challenge with a STEM tale: Breakfast for Eight (a dilemma for Snow White and the seven dwarfs). STEM tales are a series of STEM challenges that are accessible for your youngest budding engineers; they use a fairy tale that your students are likely already familiar with. By adding in a story element, those students that might typically shy away from STEM activities may find joy in transporting themselves into a story to solve a problem.
The dwarfs are grumpy in the morning when they wake up and often bicker at breakfast! Fear not, as Doc has developed a computer program to help with the seating arrangement! Use the conditional statements so the dwarfs can eat in peace. Along the way, design them a nice new table so they have ample room to eat!
→Instructions and sample images
→Introductory pages for conditional statements (IF/THEN and IF/THEN/ELSE)
→8-page story book to guide your students through the engineering design process
(This has a differentiated page - choose IF/THEN if your kids are new to programming or IF/THEN/ELSE if they are up for a challenge!)
→Data recording sheet
→Certificate of completion
