STEM and a Snowman Factory : Exploring Systems Engineering

Let’s learn about systems engineering with a Snowman Factory. With a recipe for glittery snow dough, student handouts, and a teacher guide, you will have all you need for a great cooperative learning activity. Your class will work in groups to develop a system for engineering snowmen. Perfect for integration into history, to use for indoor recess, or as a fun STEM activity for the end of the week.

This lesson is also part of our January Bundle.

Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
