Fly With Me

Engineering Design Challenge - A Lesson in Aeronautics
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!

During your ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS, you will explore Bernoulli’s Principle, the principles of lift, drag, weight, and thrust. Understand that wings are lifters, build a catapult airplane, a helicopter with propeller, and much, much, more.

* Emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)
* Extended learning through our exclusive online portal
* For children ages 8 and up

Description

With the Groovy Single Box Trio, receive three single boxes with a special bundle discount!

With Groovy Lab in a Box, young STEMists (your children!) will receive fun, hands-on projects and an engineering design challenge – all focused on a particular STEM topic.

All STEMists will receive a Lab Notebook, where they can read about that month’s topic, perform investigation activities and document their findings. They will investigate, brainstorm, plan, build, test and redesign their own creations.

STEMists also receive access to our special “Beyond…in a Box” online learning portal. This is a unique feature of Groovy Lab in a Box because it gives STEMists a deeper understanding of that month’s topic. “Beyond…in a Box” has videos and more interactive activities to supplement what they are learning from the box projects, which also helps the STEMist even more when completing the design challenge.

While the investigation activities have step-by-step directions, STEMists won’t have detailed directions to complete the Engineering Design Challenge. Instead, they must rely on their critical thinking skills, and what they’ve learned through the investigation process from the Lab Notebook and online activities. The Engineering Design Challenge is the culmination of your STEMist’s learning experience – the ultimate project where he/she must apply the knowledge gained from that month’s activities.

Science learning made fun!
