STEM Activity for 1st Grade: Nature-Inspired Design

Hello everyone! Our STEM team and the 1st grade team collaborated on a transdisciplinary project that integrated science, engineering, writing, technology, and social studies.

In this project-based learning unit we provided the students the following driving question: How will you create a tool that is useful in a family activity?

Students used the design thinking process to design and engineer their family activity tool.
