Early Childhood STEM Enrichment Program: Week 4

Week 4: Paper Structures Part 2

Objective: Students will work in teams of 3 to design and build a structure from the provided materials, and then test it to hold weight.

This week the students would have to finish working on their paper structures and make final adjustments. Then the students would submit their structures for weight testing. Finally they would provide me with feedback from the first 4 weeks of the program, the Civil Engineering Unit.

Here are the documents that they completed for their portfolio.




Here are the structures upon completion. This one is Structure #1.





This one is Structure #2.






This one is Structure #3. This team decided at the beginning of Week 4 to change their whole design, and ripped apart what they had built in Week 3.



Then we went about testing the structures.

Here is the test for Structure #1, made by three 1st grade students. (2 part video)
