Easily integrate STEM Challenges in your Classroom!

Get your students pumped up for St. Patrick's Day! In this STEM Challenge, students help a leprechaun design, build, and test an amazing tower to hold the Leprechaun's pot of gold!

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

This activity is an excellent STEM center or as a whole classroom experience. It aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).

Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM Teachers, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom!

What teachers are saying about Leprechaun Tower STEM Challenge:

"This was a great resource for teaching a grade 1 to 6 Super Saturday center right around St. Patrick's Day Weekend. Easy to gather supplies with ready made instructions made for some super engaged kiddos on a weekend!" - Heather T.

"I used this lesson with my firsties while I was being observed by a STEM coach from Discovery Ed. It worked out great! They struggled for a while but learned the value of reflecting and improving their designs. Thank you!"

"This activity made my kids think! It was a little harder than the activities we've done before, which was great for them! Thanks" - Rebecca S.

"Little engineers! My kiddos loved this STEM activity. They could be creative and the activity guide kept the project structured and on track. Thanks!" - Brittany B.

"We did this activity last week and my students had a blast! They loved it and were very creative with their thinking! Thank you!" - Laura H.
