Each Monday I hope to motivate the girls to think with a STEM Challenge. For those unfamiliar with what a STEM Challenge actually is - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Sometime even Art is added in to make it STEAM.
Yesterday I handed the girls a stack of index cards and tape. I asked them to create a structure that could support weight. Most of what they created worked.
It was interesting to watch how each individual created their structure. No two were alike.
If you are interested in starting a STEM Challenge day in your home I have created a Pinterest Board dedicated to STEM Challenges. I am also considering this as a Cooperative class next semester for the elementary group.
