Elementary school is the perfect time to introduce the engineering design process through simple STEM activities because it builds on children’s natural curiosities to create. STEM Bins provide an invitation for children to explore and engineer through play using materials and manipulatives, such as LEGO bricks, pattern blocks, Dixie cups, toothpicks, playdough, and popsicle sticks. Instead of being just “busy,” students are engaged in creative, complex tasks and are encouraged to think like inventors. Kinesthetic learners, spatial learners, and logical learners all love exploring the different possibilities for the building materials. My students will have opportunities to discover, construct, test, and explore using divergent, “outside the box” thinking.
