Every week, EVPL will be posting a new STEAM challenge for you to complete from your home! The challenge will run from Monday until Friday. Your parents can help, or you can complete the challenge on your own. We would love to see your creations! Submissions will be posted the following Monday when a new challenge is presented.
Description: How strong is a piece of paper? Does the shape make a difference? For this Weekly Challenge, we are going to test different shapes to see which one can hold the most weight.
Questions to ask:
What shapes do you see in buildings? Are they on the inside or outside of the building? How do they support the weight? What makes a building strong besides the materials being used? What shapes do you see in nature? How does a tree support the weight of its branches?
The challenge can be adjusted by limiting or increasing the number of pieces of paper.
Age group/grade level suggested: All Ages
Send a picture of your strong shapes to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured next week!
What shape held the most weight?
