This fun Valentine’s Day STEM Challenge inspires students to design and test the best arrow launching device for our friend, Cupid. Once students have designed and built their arrow launcher, it’s time to test it! Students test their arrow launching devices by playing a game to see who can score the most points. Then, they analyze their data to see which design was the most successful!
This challenge comes with the engineering challenge design brief, challenge poster, criteria/constraints poster and procedure/set-up tips. Also included are interactive STEM notebook pages as well as the game board (target). Posters are designed as full-page and notebook pages are designed as half-pages.
