STEM collaborations

We are currently working on our Introduction unit it STEM!  During this time we focus on activities that encourage students to use their creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.  For one such project students were inventors!  Each student was given a card with an invention idea.  They got to choose the material they used to create their invention.  My 6th graders did a project where they had to create a tower with only 100 notecards, 1 foot of tape, in 20 minutes that could support the weight of a small stuffed animal.  Below is the highest tower at over 27 inches!

Nice work Pinewood STEM students!
