This STEM resource contains step-by-step procedures for the teacher with accompanying lab sheets for students. After designing, students will build a container for the fragile cargo, test it, revise it, and test again until the model works at the greatest height. After presenting the models, students will have the opportunity to try a re-design! The rules of the STEM project will require a fabulous collaboration with your teams as they build these devices. Will the cargo survive the drop?

In this STEM Challenge, students build a barrier that will slow or stop the flow of water. First, they test various absorbent items. After experimenting, test results help choose an absorbent item and then they design the flood-proof barrier. It is tested when water is poured into the structure's container. Can students effectively use the materials to build a fence system and pack it with absorbent items? Will the house flood? Great problem solving occurs with this STEM project!
