We are in year #2 as a STEM school and it has been a great way to infuse a lot of problem solving, cooperation, and excitement into the classroom! I believe that STEM is a philosophy of teaching! Here is one of the STEM challenges we have completed this year! It is so much fun to facilitate these activities and see and hear their thinking as they progress through each challenge! I have also created a new blog all about the STEM process! Check it out and see if you can use any of these ideas in your classroom!
This type of idea has been around awhile, and I can see why! The kids had a great time trying to be successful at this STEM challenge!
You will need (per group):
– 48 Tiny Glasses (got them at the Dollar Tree)
Super easy set-up and supplies! All of my STEM challenges use really cheap and easy to find materials!
