Prep and Junior STEM

Welcome Mini Docs! Here is a page where you can extend your thinking beyond the every day science.

I hope you enjoy these challenges and can't wait to hear how you go with them!


In this video, you will see us working together to make the tallest tower, using simple household items. In this video, we used pipe-cleaners, but you can get creative and use items such as

  • cards, blocks, boxes, icy-pole sticks or even paper!

  • There is only one rule: Your tower must be able to stand on it's own. So far, the tallest tower built is 24cm, using 6 pipe cleaners. Can you beat that?

  • Actually, there is one more rule! You have 5 minutes!

Good luck
