Engineering Lesson Resources

STEM challenge rubric– This is the general rubric I use with STEM challenges and engineering activities.   When students finish a lab I have them draw a line which is labeled L.O.L. (for Line of Learning) and write a summary of their learning.  Checkpoints are used when checking work, particularly when using an activity sheet or  smaller activity.

STEM challenge lab report template– This is a very simple template I use to facilitate STEM challenge activities.  I usually print the criteria and constraints for students to glue in their Interactive Notebook and students write the rest of the lab report as they do the activity.


Great resources for after school engineering clubs or camps:
