Description

This is a building STEM challenge called The Yellow Brick Road Get Upcycled. STEM tales are a series of STEM challenges that are accessible for your youngest budding engineers; they use a fairy tale that your students are likely already familiar with. By adding in a story element, those students that might typically shy away from STEM activities may find joy in transporting themselves into a story to solve a problem. If you are reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to your students, this is a great companion activity. It can also be used as a standalone STEM challenge.

Dorothy has found herself in an unusual place, filled with Munchkins and without the Wicked Witch they feared. Dorothy needs to get home to Kansas, but before she does, she has an idea to help the Munchkins start anew by repurposing the yellow brick road.

Materials Needed: You will need some "bricks" for this activity. You can use building bricks, dominoes, cubes, wooden planks, etc. I recommend 30-50 per team.
