Starfish Education: STEM Skills Challenge- 10 Challenges to Build STEM Skills Employers Value

This STEM catapult challenge involves engineering, geometry, ratios, critical thinking, and teamwork in an engaging activity your students will love! Using the engineering design process along with math skills, teams of students will build two catapult designs from common materials. Each team will then test at three stations: Distance, Accuracy, and Power. Included are follow-up math problems for enhanced learning. One of our favorite STEM activities!

Awesome STEM engineering project with basic household materials! Fun way for kids to practice essential science skills (measurement, creating a hypothesis, conducting an experiment, using science tools, thinking like a scientist, and more) in a short amount of time.

Last year, I started a new Space Club program at four middle schools. Not  wanting to reinvent the wheel, I searched the web for ideas and curriculum  to implement. I soon became excited to find great resources like NASA and  TeachEngineering, but I was also overwhelmed as a simple Google search for  "Space STEM activities" gives you a mere 89 million hits. Wading through a  lot of junk eventually brought some gems that I could implement, and I  leave it to another post to rant about the…
