What educators are saying

The kids had fun with these activities and I enjoyed watching them come up with their ideas and testing them. I don't tell students how to build them so they can learn problem solving skills.

    Here are some Frequently Asked Questions by teachers like you:

    #1 Do I really need 54 STEM activities?
    Even if you have less than 52 weeks in your school calendar, the extra STEM challenges in this bundle can be used for other things:

    • as an early finisher activity
    • for emergency sub-plans
    • for STEM family nights
    • as homework/extension/enrichment activity

    #2 Is this bundle good value for money?

    Each STEM resource is priced at $3 on average. Put together, these STEM activities amount to almost $160. However, when you purchase this bundle, each STEM challenge will only cost $1.65. Altogether, you’ll save $70.

    #3 But I've already purchased some of your STEM activities. What should I do?

    Email me at and we’ll work something out.

     #4 Is this resource editable?

    This resource isn’t editable; however, each STEM activity contains a challenge card that says students can do the task with only materials that the teacher will provide, giving you flexibility in choosing materials for the task.

    #5 How long does a STEM activity take from start to finish?

    I usually do one challenge per week in my classroom as I only get four hours for STEM each week. Taking the students through the engineering design process from start to finish will take the same amount of time.

    #6 Does each STEM activity come with step-by-step instructions?

    Unlike a craftivity, there are no step-by-step directions with these STEM activities. You will receive notes on how to run the lesson from start to finish though, as well as STEM challenge cards for the students. Please take note that with STEM, there can be multiple designs of a structure. Even when using the same materials, everyone’s result should and will look different.

    #7 What is included in each resource?

    Each resource includes:

    • Notes to Teacher
    • Ideas for STEM Links
    • Suggested Materials
    • Photos and Videos (Where possible) of Possible Finished Product
    • STEM Challenge Cards
    • Planning and Reflection Sheets
    • STEM Vocabulary Sheets
    • Sheet/s with Alternative Spelling (UK/Australia/Canada - Where applicable)
