Bundle Description
Combine social studies and STEM with these challenges inspired by historical women in STEM fields. Students will use the engineering design process to solve challenges related to the work of pioneering female scientists and engineers.

Each challenge includes:
- Detailed teachers guides with links to resources
- Historical profile of a woman in STEM
- Science Handouts
- Student design process handouts
- Grading Rubric
- Math connection problems

Activities included:
(1) Solar Oven Challenge - students learn how to harness the sun's energy by constructing a solar oven to heat s'mores. This challenge also highlights Maria Telkes, the inventor of the first system to heat a home with solar power.
(2) Botany STEM Challenge - students create window greenhouses and observe plant growth. Then they use the engineering design process to build a plant transportation device to safely carry their saplings home. This challenge highlights Katherine Esau, a pioneer in botany.
(3) Bridge STEM Challenge - students use the engineering design process and explore compression and tension forces in bridges while building their own bridge. This challenge highlights Emily Roebling, the first woman field engineer who was instrumental in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge.

About STEM Challenges: STEM challenges are an engaging way to incorporate the engineering design process into your classroom or afterschool program! These hands-on activities allow students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect science topics to real-world applications. The teacher will provide the structure to the project, but students will take an active role in designing and building their own balloon rocket device.
