St. Patrick's Day STEM Challenge: Guard the Gold

For leprechauns, life is a constant struggle to protect their pot of gold from treasure hunting thieves and keep from getting caught themselves! This St. Patrick's Day STEM challenge takes a look at a leprechaun's struggle to guard his gold! 


St. Patrick's Day STEM Challenge: In Guard the Gold, students build one or more devices to help a leprechaun guard his pot of gold from thieves! Comes with modifications for grades 2-8.



Premise

Working against a criteria & constraints list, students build one or more devices to help a leprechaun quickly move and hide his gold from potential thieves!

Where Can I Find Out More?

I could write it all down, but you've probably already had a long day. Wouldn't it be nicer to just sit back and watch? I've found creating video walk-throughs of my STEM challenges is the best/fastest way to explain the important details: materials, set-up, tips, modifications, extensions, and more! Check out the video below to learn more about Guard the Gold:








Are There Other Challenges Like This?


Of course! I can't help myself! I have created 5 challenges for St. Pat's! You can find the overview of each on this blog post. These challenges will all post by March 12, 2017. Each challenge will be linked to the post linked above, so be sure to check back weekly! 

Please reach out with any questions and tag me in photos of your students' work on Facebook & Instagram if you want to give me a smile this holiday season!

You can find even more STEM challenges in my Mega Bundle, on this blog, and on my YouTube channel!
