Benefits of this STEM Design Challenge:
- Focus on critical thinking, problem solving, and application of learning
- Helps students develop growth mindset traits like persistence and resilience
- High levels of student engagement
- The potential to hit upon all NGSS ETS standards depending on the depth and number of iterations you choose to implement in your classroom (modifications included)
- Highly flexible and differentiated for materials, timing, grade levels, and rigor.

Each design iteration should be planned for ~60 - 90 min. if you are including data gathering and analysis rather than just building for fun. If you add extension activities, you will need to adjust timing accordingly.

What do teachers have to say about this resource?

“This is my third set (so far). My students love, love the activities. Thank you for sharing the wildly creative, critical thinking challenges.”

“My class loved these activities! Thank you!”

“I loved this bundle! As usual as I have bought them all this year!! And will be buying the summer bundle tomorrow to use in MAY. Can’t say enough about how organized, clear, and concise these STEM projects are. They are truly STEM...as they are not just an experiment but allow the students to engineer and investigate and really think! They also are easy to make more challenging, or leveled. I have done these with 2nd through 5th grade gifted and talented students. LOVE LOVE the videos provided that help make things more clear to me and help me truly visualize and I even come up with more ideas by watching! I buy a lot on TPT...SHE IS ONE OF THE BEST! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Investing IN THESE! You don't have to be a STEM, SCIENCE, or GT teachers, they can be used and are such a valuable use of instructional time for any class!”

“What fun activities to pull out around St.Pat's, which is usually just a couple of days before spring break for me. So even more appreciated that they are fun and easy to use!”
