The new school year has started and students in grades 4, 5, and 7 will be participating in STEM this year. The students started the year out getting to know the lay out of the room, the teacher, and each other. They participated in 2 team building activities, Save Sam and classroom skits.
The first engineering unit will be an egg car collision project. Students will start this week or next depending on their class. Documents for the project are available on my school website. Stay tuned for egg car pictures in a few weeks.
Enjoy pictures from the Save Sam activity. Students had to save a gummy work from drowning by inserting the worm into a lifevest (lifesaver), but could not use their hands. They were only able to use tools that could be engineered from 2 paper clips.
