2nd Grade STEM Bins

Second graders were recently introduced to STEM Bins, a hands-on form of engineering for elementary students. STEM Bins contain a large variety of materials.  When a student opens the bin and sees the contents he or she is encouraged to think imaginatively.  Students have the chance to design and build real world things such as working tools, bridges, mazes or traps.  However, they can also design something the world has never seen before.  STEM Bins promote creativity and engineering by using 2D and 3D shapes, lines, and angles.

As the second graders were introduced to STEM Bins, they worked together collaboratively as they thought about what to build as well as when they improved upon designs together as their structures took shape.

Second graders will continue to use STEM Bins throughout the school year.
