20 Turnkey STEM E-Activities to Intrigue, Inspire & Challenge
By Sandi Reyes
Is it possible to develop basic engineering skills as early as grades 3–5 without adding to your existing curriculum? You bet! Present your class with the exciting e-activity challenges from Engineer Through the Year: 20 Turnkey STEM E-Projects to Intrigue, Inspire & Challenge, and introduce students to Sandi’s simple five-step engineering design process. Then, as you guide them with simple questions, watch your budding engineers delight in designing their own unique rockets and catapults, ski lifts and parachutes, greenhouses, roller coasters, and so much more.
Use these hands-on, open-ended projects to:
- Take advantage of students`s natural curiosity
- Incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts into your existing curriculum
- Develop 21st-century skills, such as creativity, collaboration, and problem solving
- Establish real-world connections for classroom learning
- Differentiate according to your students` needs
There are 20 activities in all.
With Engineer Through the Year, students build engineering skills all year long. And they learn to think like engineers for the rest of their lives.
