KMS STEM Projects

posted Nov 3, 2016, 10:53 AM by Linda Burns



Team 3 Math classes have spent some time working on two STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) projects.  The first project was "The Paper Tower."  Students had $5 to spend on various materials (paper, tape, index cards, cups).  They had to work in teams to decide how much of each material to buy in order to make the tallest freestanding tower.  This activity even introduced them to balancing a check book!  The next activity was "Pencil Catapult."  Students were given twelve pencils, and had to use pencils and rubber bands to make a catapult.  Upon completion of building the catapult, they chose a challenge activity to complete (catapult an object into a basket, for example).  Students had lots of practice on the "design, try, redesign, try again idea" of the engineering process, as well as how to work as a team to meet a goal.
