Description

STEM PBL Units enable students to make STEM connections locally and regionally by completing STEM projects and corresponding STEM PBL Activators. The framework of our STEM PBL Units includes a meaningful STEM challenge, authentic inquiry, student choice, applied development, and public engagement. Additionally, all STEM PBL Units contain 3-D printing connections, career connections, and alignment to the national career clusters.

In the Air-Powered Rocketry STEM PBL Unit, students are challenged to complete any of the three Activators chosen by them or the teacher. PBL Activators available include Straw Games, where students design a fun game for all ages; Bird Brigade, where students create an automatic bird scatterer for their community; and Straw Wars, where students participate in a simulated war using straw projectiles.

The unit comes with materials and equipment needed for a class of 24 students, a teacher’s guide containing activity details and instructions, and a guide with three STEM PBL Activators containing starter ideas, cross-curricular connections, a concept map, and career cluster alignment. A Getting Started with STEM PBL e-learning course comes with the purchase of a unit.
