January STEM Challenge

On the La Tercera STEM Calendar, you will find exciting STEM activities for each month. This month you are responsible for completing a STEM challenge at home and bringing it to school. Pictures of the activity are acceptable as well.

If you complete one of the activities below and bring it to Mrs. Corbett the week of January 23-27, 2017 you will receive a prize. You may also create any of the items from the STEM activity of the Week to receive a prize. Have fun!

Have you ever wanted to build your own catapult? Click here to learn how you can do so right at home.

If you came to our FOSS Science Week, you saw the amazing catapults generated from our 6th graders. I hope that will serve as an inspiration to try out this activity at home. If you build one, be sure to bring it to school and share it with Mrs. Corbett. You ner know, you might just be rewarded with an Eagle feather.
