Planning our race car designs. I set up the kids in random groups of three. I was very impressed on how well they got along. There were discussions on materials and their purposes and what the cars should look like. The lesson was from Teach Engineering. They were given a budget and ha a math component to the lesson.
Race day was so much fun! We had a few duds but for the most part...it was a huge success. I plan on using more projects from this website. My husband and brother-in-law made the racetracks our of coil stock which is for siding houses.
The lesson I used was from the website below. It has the lessons, powerpoints, printables, etc. I plan on using other STEM projects next year. Click link below.
