We are headed to outerspace for this STEM Camp! (At least in our imaginations.) Join us to develop your perseverance and problem solving skills by participating in the engineering design process as you create a rover to land safely on Mars and a moon buggy (lunar roving vehicle) to explore the rough terrain of the moon using various craft supplies and/or materials such as recycled items collected around the house. Please keep in mind that depending on the materials and methods chosen, there...
Students will be able to complete a STEM challenge by following the engineering design process.
Students will need to gather supplies for the STEM challenges.
- Class handouts (Will be posted prior to class.) - Scissors - Glue (may want Elmer’s, Tacky, and hot glue) - Tape (may want a variety such as clear, masking, and duct tape) Various STEM Supplies *This is just a list of suggestions. Students will design their projects based on the supplies they have available to them. I find that recyclable materials work great such as small boxes and plastic containers from food packaging. - Construction paper, card stock, craft foam, scrapbook paper - Yarn - Small plastic containers (yogurt, pudding, sour cream, k-cups, medicine bottles, etc.) - Toilet paper, paper towel, and wrapping paper tubes - Disposable plates, bowls, cups, and silverware - Cupcake wrappers and coffee filters - Tooth picks, Q-tips, cotton balls, rubber bands - Craft sticks, Pipe cleaners, buttons, foam shapes - Aluminum foil, wax paper, plastic wrap - Bubble wrap - Styrofoam peanuts - Styrofoam trays
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Using hot glue is optional, however, students may need assistance if you allow them to use it for their STEM project.
