Valentine's Day STEM Bundle

STEM Challenges for the Year Seasonal Bundle

In this challenge, students will design a candy box that will exactly hold a specific amount of candy. They will have a few pieces to use in helping plan the box. They will build and decorate the box and then test it to see if the dimensions are perfect. And, since this is a Valentine box, it must be heart shaped! Along the way they will have the chance to pre-test the box and make adjustments in its size if they feel changes are needed. After improving and finishing, each team will present its work and then test it with all of the candy. Which group will have the perfect fit? Can the teams decorate in a creative or unusual way?

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes Clear tape, Card stock, Copy paper, Construction paper, Straws, String or yarn, Glue sticks, and CANDY!

The package specifically includes

  • Cover
  • Teacher background
  • Materials and preparation page
  • 5 pages of teacher directions
  • Constraints list in 2 versions
  • 4 pages of photographs
  • 2 versions of a lab sheet
  • Scoring rubric
  • BONUS Christmas Version
  • All forms are provided in an editable format.

This challenge works great with Christmas candy, too! The directions and lab sheets are included to use this at Christmas time!

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions to complete. We completed it in one hour.

This challenge is perfect when paired with these two from the Heart Series:

Build a Valentine Delivery Zip Line
