STEM Activities: Middle School

Here are some fun hands-on activities for teaching middle school students about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

This would be good for either of my scout groups (boys or girls). I'm thinking they would make a good gathering activity to then race. See which one goes the farthest, fastest, or which one knocks down the most "pins" perhaps?


Marble slides. This site has lots of cool science activities using everyday materials.
