This lesson was created to give students an engaging and inventive way to apply their understanding of Material Properties. In these Engineering Challenges, the students will create an Invention to solve a problem by working collaboratively through the Engineering Design Process. They will have the opportunity to apply Physical Science content and Engineering Practices from the Next Generation Science Standards!
NGSS STEM Engineering Challenge for Primary Students- Cup Holder Challenge
This lesson was created to give students an engaging and inventive way to apply their understanding of Material Properties. In these Engineering Challenges, the students will create an Invention to solve a problem by working collaboratively through the Engineering Design Process.
This lesson gives students the opportunity to test the property of elasticity for different materials and goes along perfect with the study of physical science that focuses on the properties of various materials. Students hold their breath as we see how far we can stretch different materials until they're about to SNAP!
This lesson gives students an engaging and hands-on opportunity to engineer their own erosion prevention method. Use this lesson to take the concept of weathering and erosion and apply a real world problem and solution to it. This lesson follows the Engineering Design Process of Brainstorm, Plan, Build and Improve and is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards.*This challenge should be conducted after the students have learned about Weathering and Erosion.Included:Engineering…
