Geometry..Engineering a Bridge. This lesson will involve your students in geometry and measurement as they work as civil engineers to design and build their own bridge. -I remember doing a project like this in 4th or 5th grade. We also had a budget and had to "buy" our materials from the teacher, so we had to plan before hand and use everything carefully.

STEM and transmedia lesson plans, all tied to common core
Analyzing samples from a planet, moon, or asteroid helps scientists learn about its chemistry, geologic history, and potential to support past or present life. Nearly every NASA surface mission collects samples. In this video from Design Squad Nation, kids design and build coring devices that can poke into a potato “asteroid” and extract a core sample. The kids use the engineering design process, apply a variety of science concepts, and learn about NASA’s exploration of the ...

Kid-built in a few hours . . . this 7 inch tall basketball hoop can be assembled and re-assembled. We’re not going to toss a ball to make baskets with this project. Oh, no . . . we are making a little catapult to launch marshmallows at the hoop! Oh, yes! Sweet! Use this building project as a challenging independent study for upper elementary, as a whole-class engineering project, or use it to make math and science applications.
