STEM Challenges

What is STEM?

STEM activities (science, technology, engineering and math) are all the rage in education. And for good reason! Kids need to be prepared for their STEM filled future.

Researchers will need to find cures to illnesses.

Engineers will need to design faster, more Earth friendly cars.

Computer coders will need to build cutting edge apps…

Introducing kids to STEM activities now develops a foundation of skills that they’ll use for a lifetime.

And making those STEM activities FUN grows a love for the field.

Geoboard STEM Challenges

These geoboard STEM challenges build problem solving and design skills while working on geometry, counting, perimeter, angles, comparing and scaling at the same time. They’re jam packed with learning!

To prep the activity, I just printed the cards on cardstock, cut them apart, and grabbed a geoboard and rubber band set. (I grabbed ours HERE.)

I wanted to keep the cards together so I punched a hole in the upper lefthand corner and hooked them with a binder ring like the ones HERE.

Middle Brother (age 5) was eager to jump right in so he flipped to the first card in the set (a boat!) and started recreating it on his board.

Over the course of the next few days, he worked his way through all 45 designs.

Although he wasn’t quite ready for the next step, I included a record sheet students can use to work on scaling. It’s a great challenge for older kids!

Plus an open-ended design sheet so children can stretch their creativity.
