Your students will be engaged and learning with St. Patrick's Day math and science fun! Grab the Flying Shamrock STEM Activity! All four pillars of the STEM model are addressed.

Students build a simple Flying Shamrock with coffee stirrers, a drinking straw, and a paper shamrock. They conduct flight trials, measure the distances, then make modifications to control how far the Shamrock travels. After they collect data on their modifications, students share written reflections on the experience. If you have digital tools available, they will use the Planning Sheet to plan their presentation.

Please note that coffee stirrers and drinking straws must be added.
