STEM Challenge: Build a Raft

We had another engineering challenge for the week that is in it.  This challenge also has a water focus.

Today we were given materials to build a raft.

We had to plan and design our rafts, then build them, test them out and see how much cargo they could carry before sinking.

We really enjoyed working in teams.  We used all our skills of curiosity, questioning, problem solving, predicting, creating, collaborating, communicating, critical thinking, evaluating, finding information, offering explanations for our findings to help us in our challenge today.

We also had a lot of fun.

Happy Engineers Week!
