STEM bin challenges

We are introducing a new activity for our morning work! STEM bins! If you aren't aware of what STEM is, it stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. These challenges require students to envision, plan, construct, and redesign their structures. It requires students to think critically, problem solve and preserve through challenges. In addition, to being FUN!

We tried out our first challenge today. Build a free standing tree using only 10 piper cleaners.
Here are some of the designs!

 Valeria took the challenge to the next level to build a tree that held weight!
