17 science activities for kids. Project-Based Engineering for Kids- a series of fun and interactive science projects for kids. Projects include: marble roller coasters, sail cars, propeller cars, rubber band helicopters, crash test cars with eggs as passengers, sling shot rockets, catapults and many more. I can't wait to try these!
Engineering on a Dime: 3 STEM Challenges You Can Do Today
STEM challenges are a great way to explore engineering when you lack the time to devote to a rigorous engineering design challenge. These three challenges can be set up with very little prep time and with materials you either have on hand or can easily obtain.
Need a hand for a specific task? In the "Grasping with Straws: Make a Robot Hand Using Drinking Straws" #robotics engineering Project Idea, students use drinking straws, sewing thread, and glue to make a functional "gripping" hand. A convenient #science project kit is available! [Source: Science Buddies, http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Robotics_p001.shtml?from=Pinterest] #STEM
In the "The Effect of Bridge Design on Weight Bearing Capacity" civil engineering #science Project Idea, students build bridges using both straws and wooden sticks and then put them to the test. It's build and break hands-on science and engineering fun! A convenient project kit is available to do this science project.

AWESOME! = Art Robots. When my toys broke growing up... I would take them apart to get at the electric motor. This project is perfect for a curious creative mind=) Actually would nurture these as qualities.
Turn a spare toothbrush head into your first robot! The "Racing BristleBots: On Your Mark. Get Set. Go!" #robotics engineering Project Idea guides students in an entry-level robotics exploration that is fun for home or for a school #science project. What kind of toothbrush bristles work best?
