STEM's Fun Activities

STEM is a "new" curriculum in the Horry County Schools that educate students in the following four areas: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The STEM program allow students the opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts and assist students with real-life situations to help them learn.

In Ms Deas STEM class the students' worked on two group activities. The first activity was the Cup Stacking Engineering Challenge where students had to create the tallest tower with the given amount of plastic cups. The students in the group built small and large towers to show their knowledge of engineering and the distribution of weight of the towers. The second activity was the Building Bridges Challenge, in this challenge students' had to first use their planning and designing process then end with the building process using cups, popsicles and plastic animals.
