This Winter STEM Challenge is great for team building, introducing students to the engineering design process, and a fun, winter, STEM Challenge. This Challenge can be completed in less than an hour and uses materials you already have in your classroom.

In my classroom, we do A LOT of cooperative learning and this is a fun and engaging way to get them started!

This Winter Yeti Zip Line STEM Challenge includes:
