Second Grade STEM

What a fun day in second grade. We have been studying simple machines in science. Today, the second graders were given the task to create a simply machine from an electric toothbrush, a styrofoam cup, two elastic bands, and markers. The task was to get the styrofoam cup to move. An extra bonus was to use the markers to draw while the cup was moving. One group was able to create a circle while the other group had the machine moving in all different directions. Yes, there were some failures in the process but, it is all about learning different strategies and different ways of thinking! I have attached pictures, and videos. Just listen to the excitement in their voices!
