Last year, I started a new Space Club program at four middle schools. Not  wanting to reinvent the wheel, I searched the web for ideas and curriculum  to implement. I soon became excited to find great resources like NASA and  TeachEngineering, but I was also overwhelmed as a simple Google search for  "Space STEM activities" gives you a mere 89 million hits. Wading through a  lot of junk eventually brought some gems that I could implement, and I  leave it to another post to rant about the…

This project correlates with my unit on forces and motion in my physical science middle school class. Over a span of three days, students design a car that will protect a raw egg from breaking when it hits the ground after being on a ramp. The students will then test and modify their design.

Most elementary and middle school students are crazy about Minecraft, so I have decided to create a STEM challenge pack based on this popular game. This engineering challenge activity pack is one of many that I have created to use in my classroom! I place these challenges, one per table, and the students rotate around the room in order to complete them.
