Participating in an exciting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) challenge where students worked in groups to design and engineer a free-standing structure that would hold their drill piece, using only newspaper, tape, string, pipe cleaners and popsicle sticks. The challenge was laid out, and these students set out to create a wide range of designs.
Students explored how steam turns the turbines, using a steam-powered engine as the model.
Students then explored how water convection works with a science demonstration showing how the water moves depending on the temperature. This demonstrated what happens to the water in the group and the condenser and cooler.
