How it Works!

Appropriate for Students in Grades 3-5

What do I need to do?


  1. Choose a small mechanical or electrical device that interests you
  2. Take it apart and see how it is made
  3. Research to find out how it works

You can ask an expert, read about it, research online etc.

  1. Create a short presentation about what you learned!


Be Ready for STEM Expo…

  • Be an expert - practice your presentation
  • Be sure you know how your device works !
  • Make sure you share where you got your information!
  • Make sure your presentation** is neat and attractive

** Parent help is encouraged!

Parents: YouTube is a great resource for this project, there are tons of videos out there about how things work… BUT please supervise your child during the research process!
