Engage students this Halloween with Spider Web STEM!

In this fall STEM activity, students design a realistic model of a spider web! Students learn about how spider webs are incredibly strong for their size and how researchers study the design of spider webs to create future products.

The STEM Process:

Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
