Puppy STEM Activities


This Back to School STEM challenge is designed to help your students think outside the box and learn how the world works. This Puppy STEM challenge helps students explore the engineering design process using common materials.

The STEM Process:

Present the STEM challenge: Using a single piece of paper, work with your partner/team to create the longest and strongest leash possible for Pogo so he can still explore outside without running away or breaking the leash. Then students imagine, explore, reimagine, plan, create & test, improve, reflect, and evaluate their designs.

Materials Needed

We’ve included a list for material recommendations, but this challenge can be done with materials you have on hand, such as paper, pipe cleaners, cups, popsicle sticks, string, scissors, cotton balls, cardboard, rubber bands, glue, and tape.
