STEM Challenges

Our class has now completed three STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) challenges. The cup challenge, the spaghetti challenge and the balloon challenge. All of the challenges require students to use critical thinking and collaboration skills. It has been very exciting to see their thinking and teamwork!

Yesterday, we opened the wall to do the Balloon challenge with Mr. MacKenzie's class! It was very exciting to work together for the first time. The objective was to create the tallest freestanding structure in 20 minutes. The structures ranged from 44cm all the way to 110cm! Wow!

Materials given:
- 2m of tape
-14 balloons
-piece of paper
