This is my 2nd collection of 50 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) challenges for kids. This is recommended for ALL GRADES These projects support the engineering-design process and provide learning in technical fields in a fun, hands-on, and sometimes competitive way. Keep kids engaged and learning creatively

Each challenge has a snappy mission title, a brief description of the task required, the rules for the mission, and optional grading rubrics. These are very adjustable for your classroom, home, camp, science lab, or homeschooling needs. With minor tweaks, these projects could easily be used from grades K to 12

Each project is a critical thinking challenge and experiment. Students will have to figure out how to defeat each task. Children will learn by planning, designing, testing, and measuring. Then, they will have to reflect upon their work. Often, students will have to go back and redesign their projects to make them work better. It is highly recommended that students keep journals, blogs, or video reports of their projects

Challenge projects are tagged with categories so you can search for other similar labs. Types of labs included are: paper airplanes, bridge building, roller coasters, weight lifting projects, tower construction, cars, strength tests, crash tests, egg tests, and many, many more.
