Sticking Together in the STEM Lab

My students need all kinds of adhesives when they are engineering, especially duct tape, masking tape, and glue

My Students

First through fourth grade students are doing amazing work learning about the engineering design process and four-Cs of effective group work in the STEM lab and outdoor learning garden.

My students enjoy working collaboratively, while using critical thinking skills, to solve challenges related to science, technology, engineering, and math.

Skills such as creative problem solving, effective communication, and teamwork are encouraged as students work. In addition to the work they do in class, these hard-working students complete projects at home, before school, and even during lunch.

My Project

Over 650 young student engineers build wonderful creations in the STEM lab every week. These students repurpose pieces of cardboard, paper tubes, plastic containers and other found materials as they build catapults, vehicles, robots, towers, and other wonderful creations!

All of these inventive projects need to be held together with tape and other adhesives!

The students go through so much tape and glue in the STEM lab as they build, invent, and create.

These rolls of tape, glue, stickers, and glue dots will be put to great use by hundreds of students working side by side collaborating on projects related to science, technology, engineering and math.
