Due Date: March 31, 2021
Supplies needed: A Big Box of Assorted Lego, A shallow dish, water table, or container
Water, Pennies, Pencil/Paper (optional)
Directions: The best part about STEM challenges is that you get to test, problem solve and use trial and error. There are no set instructions to follow and creativity is challenged. To make a LEGO boat, you will need to create a flat surface and sides to your boat. How big, how wide or how deep of a boat you make is completely part of the fun. When you are making a boat, you want to make sure that water cannot leak into the base of the boat and that you have enough room to put pennies inside the boat. Once you have built a few boats to your liking you are ready to test! STEM challenge! You can test how many pennies your boat can hold before sinking.
However, you might want to set up another challenge….
* Which boat floats the longest?
* Which boat flows down a river the fastest?
* Which boat holds the most mini figures?
Remember to email pictures!

We all solve problems every day, but most of us do not every stop to think what process we use to solve those problems. Without clear guidelines to solve problems, many individuals struggle to overcome obstacles. Teenagers face a variety of problems ranging from minor disagreements with friends to major academic problems that could affect their future. Those who lack problem solving skills may feel stuck or overwhelmed. Define the problem, Brainstorm the solutions, pick a solution, implement a solution, Review Results
Benefits: Critical thinking, creative problem solving, quick problem solving
Time Duration: 15 – 20 minutes
Materials Required: Pen or pencil, a piece of paper.
Dumbest Idea First is one of the most creative problem-solving activities for groups. This can encourage your creativity by thinking out of the box and lead you to ideas that would typically sound too insane to work. You can broaden the possibilities by looking at these crazy solutions first and find potential alternatives that might not be as obvious.
