Promote student-driven education with these set of materials that correspond to our K-8 STEAM units. Each unit is aligned with NGSS performance expectations and Common Core Math standards and provides students with the opportunity to explore core concepts individually before applying these concepts to solve a design challenge.
Kit includes:Materials for at least 30 students to complete one unit -- Tubes, Foam, Mylar, Corks, Fabric scraps, Postcards, CD's, Adhesive roll, Stir sticks, Plastic scraps, Clear tubing, Spoons, Envelopes, Business cards, Magnets, String, and Adhesive dots NOTE: Quantity and materials may vary.
A clever way to demonstrate the transfer between potential energy and kinetic energy
Create a model car consisting of a simple chassis and a straw-based axle system (simple machine) that produces minimal friction and allows the cars to roll with little energy input, making them ideal learning tools for students of all ages.
Curriculum topics: Motion, Momentum, Friction, Simple Machines, Kinematics, Conservation of Energy
Kit includes: Idea sheet, 3 large sheets corrugated plastic (ramps), 10 small sheets corrugated plastic(car bodies), 10 plastic coffee stirrers, 10 straws, 40 foam wheels, 20 adhesive labels
