STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
STEMist n. Expert in applying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Explorer, creator, inventor!
Are your STEMists fascinated by aviation? Then make sure to get May’s “Fly With Me” groovy box – explore aeronautical forces, Bernoulli’s Principle and Newton’s Law of Inertia Action – Reaction and much, much, more.
This month’s groovy Engineering Design Challenge: You are a starry-eyed aerospace engineer and a groovy world traveler. You dream of taking off in the blue, gliding where the air is stratified and floating down to Peru. Using only the materials from your Groovy Lab in a Box, can you design, build, and launch an airplane generating thrust with a propeller which travels fifteen feet? STEMists, get ready to pack up and fly away!
Fellow STEMists who want to become groovy aerospace engineers can be on their way to doing research and investigations through the engineering design process found in the aviation-themed Groovy Lab in a Box. Every Groovy Lab in a Box comes with a groovy, retro-themed Lab Notebook where STEMists will take notes, draw pictures, design and redesign their engineering design challenge, and apply their critical thinking skills. Plus, all STEMists get access to the Beyond…in a Box, a special web portal for additional groovy STEM fun!
