Gotta love an EPIC design challenge!
If you work with kids in grades 6-12, this design challenge is one you don’t want to miss. Each year, we play a different game that challenges kids to design, build and fly a small, electric airplane. And, the project is standards-aligned and low-cost too! Check out the Electric Propulsion Innovation Challenge (EPIC).
STEM in a Brown Bag
The Brown Bag STEM Challenge is an excellent way to engage your students in low-cost design challenges that build creativity and critical thinking skills. Each challenge is low-cost, high interest and easy to implement. Check out the Brown Bag STEM Challenge.
Psst…It’s a Secret. Don’t Tell!
Cryptography is a fun way for kids to review and refine their STEM skills while having some fun. Learn how to encode and decode different ciphers. Or, incorporate these secret codes into breakout boxes or escape rooms. Check out Cryptography for Kids.
It’s seems like a Fairy Tale
Do your students love fairy tales? Or, do you need an easy-to-implement STEM challenge that doesn’t require a lot of background knowledge? Enter Teaching STEM through Fairy Tales. Each challenge in this bundle ties into a well-loved fairy tale! Check out Teaching STEM through Fairy Tales.
