Product Description
STEM challenges allow students to work cooperatively and are great for team building and are just plain FUN!
This challenge involves science and engineering process skills. You may choose to include background on zip lines and allow students to do some research if you like!
For the class challenge, you’ll need small paper cups, string, masking tape, large paper clips, straws, ping pong balls, and a STEM Challenge packet (Objective/Rules/Grading page, Planning Sheet, Zip Line Trials, Zip Line Challenge, Post-Challenge Reflection).
In the classroom, it is a team competition. Students work in teams of 3 or 4. The Zip Line Challenge objective is to carry a ping pong ball passenger along the zip line. The teams plan the Zip Line design, build, try the design and revise. The Zip Line that carries the ping pong ball to the end of the line the fastest (without losing the “passenger”) is the winner!

This Zip Line STEM Challenge includes:
♦Zip Line Planning page
♦Zip Line Trials/Revision page
♦Zip Line Challenge page
♦Zip Line Post-Challenge Reflection page
