It’s the simplest activity but it’s great fun for kids (and adults) of all ages. It’s so cheap too! Just buy some plastic cups and then see how high you can stack them without them falling.
If you have multiple children, you could make a contest out of it. Who can stack the highest? It’s basic engineering at its best.
2. STEM Challenge Ferris Wheel
This activity is best for students in grades 4-6. Some high school students might like it, but younger students will likely struggle with it.
3. Flotation Device for Action Figure
You can purchase this plan at Teachers Pay Teachers or do your own version of it. It’s pretty simple.
Ask your child to build a flotation device for their action figure and see if it will float.
You can also ask them to log their results with different types of flotation devices they’ve built, to make it a little more challenging, as well as to teach them how to record results of experiments.
This is a fun and colorful science experiment your kids will love!
Don’t break the egg! This is a fun challenge and a very popular STEM activity.
This one is really unique, can be a lot of fun, and is even easier for younger students.
This is another great engineering activity. Who wouldn’t love to build their own roller coaster?
