Weather & Atmosphere STEM Challenges
The perfect challenges for students who are studying Weather and Earth Science!

This resource has science, technology, engineering, and measurement activities to do with your upper elementary kids that will really enhance their learning!

There are 2 Weather STEM Challenges in this pack. Each STEM Challenge has detailed directions, photo examples, a list of materials needed, prediction section, brainstorming section, trials 1, 2, & 3, final results section with drawings, and a reflection section.

The STEM Challenges include:

1. Barometer Challenge!
Using a list of supplies, students must design a type of barometer that measures changes in the atmospheric pressure. Their design must have a needle that measures an increase or decrease in air pressure. Students must use the items listed below and they are not allowed to add items to the list. If they test it and it does not work properly, they have two more attempts to fix their design. They have one hour to design their barometer. (time testing their barometer does not count towards the hour). In order to test, the barometer should be placed outside or by a window.


2. Anemometer Challenge Using a list of supplies, students must design an anemometer that accurately measures wind speed. They must be able to measure how many spins the device makes per minute by marking one of the revolving cups. Students do not have to use all the materials listed below but they cannot add items to the list. They have one hour to complete this challenge. (time testing their anemometer does not count towards the hour). In order to test, the anemometer should be placed outside on a windy day or can be tested with a fan.
