• Save Time

    Each STEM challenge comes complete with an introductory video, teacher notebook, PowerPoint, and student notebook. The entire process is done for you.

  • Solve Real-World Problems

    Unlike many of the STEM challenges found online, these are written for middle school students. Each challenge takes on a 21st-century problem and walks students through the engineering design process.

  • Aligned to Standards

    The STEM challenges are aligned to the middle school TEKS and NGSS standards.

Included in Every STEM Challenge

The STEM challenges are comprehensive resources that provide the teacher the confidence to run a smooth and efficient lesson.

  • The slideshow presentation (PPT) allows the teacher to facilitate the pacing throughout the project.

  • The student notebook will guide the student through the activity. The questions will challenge students to learn new information, reflect on learned information, and provide the students a framework for the entire project.

  • Each lesson is written using the Launch process. Students are going to be brainstorming with their peers and reflecting on failures and opportunities.
