STE(a)M Saturday

Looking for a STEM activity for your youngster? Do you have some newspapers laying around, waiting to be recycled? Then look no further. An exercise in the engineering process is just around the corner.

  • You will need at least a issue of a daily newspaper
  • Tape or Stapler
  • Other recycled materials

You can find an explanation of the process here.
Check out the need play structure these guys built here.
This project is ideal for the 3-6th grader, however, younger and older participants can be coaxed into helping. A newspaper tube can be made for the younger child for her to work with while the older child might be convinced to make a more complex structure.
