What Are Peeps STEM Challenges?
STEM challenges are usually open-ended suggestions to solve a problem or challenge meant to get your kids thinking about and using the design process.
What’s the design process? I’m glad you asked! In many ways, it’s a series of steps an engineer, inventor, or scientist would go through to solve a problem.
- Build a car for a peep!
- Build a boat for a peep!
- Build a bridge for a peep!
- Build a nest for a peep!
- And More!
What Supplies Do You Need?
Of course, you need PEEPS for these STEM challenge cards!
You can use what you already have and let your kids get creative with simple materials.
My pro tip is to grab a large, clean, and clear plastic tote or bin. Whenever you come across a cool item you would normally toss into recycling, toss it in the bin instead. This goes for packaging materials and items you may otherwise throw away. Inexpensive STEM supplies are key!
To add to your holiday or seasonal theme STEM challenges, hit the craft or dollar stores for inexpensive theme items to add to the mix. For rainbows, choose bright colors!
