West Africa STEM Challenges
Cross-curricular challenges for students who are studying Middle Ages and Medieval Times!

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 West Africa 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. Gold Mining Machine - Sluice Box Challenge
Using a list of supplies, students must design and build a sluice box to search for gold. The goal of this challenge is to create a device that effectively separates gold and heavier material from river sediments (or gravel). As water moves through the device, the riffles must catch and separate the gold and/or heavy material. The sluice box must contain all the parts described (in planning pages found in the resource) using the materials below. (riffles, metal mesh, feeder, etc.) Items can be added to the materials list if needed. STEM teams have 3 days and 3 trials to complete this challenge. (more instructions are given in the resource)

2. Djembe Drum Challenge
Using a list of supplies, STEM teams must create a Djembe drum. The Djembe drum must contain all of the elements found on the diagram of page 5. The drum must also produce a variety of pitches when played on different parts of the drum head. The drum cannot be larger than 25 inches tall or have a diameter larger than 14 inches. Students must be able to complete this challenge in 2 days.
