We will do many of our Top 10 STEM activities. These are in our top 10 because they are super engaging, affordable and re-usable. More importantly, these investigations rock at making 3-D connections in ways that promote student passion for and understanding of STEM endeavors. Like your students, you will create, design, collaborate, and solve as you engage in relevant hands-on explorations.
STEM challenges take students from identifying a problem—or a design challenge—to creating and developing a solution. Each challenge is guided by the engineering design process as they immerse students in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration. Come and try out challenges that are specific to your grade level and standards. Kids totally love them and they help to develop key thinking, reasoning and investigative skills.
Coding is the art of telling a computer (or robot) exactly what to do. Drag and drop (block) coding is a relatively simple coding language that relies primarily on graphics and visual relationships. It is a great way to introduce elementary students to coding and robotics.
