Learning Undefeated Texas Mobile STEM Labs travel to Memphis

The Red River Sun/Elizabeth Tanner Memphis kindergarten students work together to build a beanstalk tall enough to reach the giant’s castle in the sky. Given 25 minutes to work on their creation, the structure had to be able to hold toy-figure Jack for one minute. Bonus points were given to teams whose structures could withstand a 30-second windstorm.

MEMPHIS – Memphis ISD kindergarten through eighth grade students participated in multiple cross-curricular STEM related activities including “Magnets Push, Magnets Pull,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” and more during Learning Undefeated Texas Mobile STEM Labs’ week-long visit.

 

Offering students the chance to immerse in hands-on STEM experiences, the portable labs focused on engaging students with the engineering design process through brainstorming, designing and testing all while allowing for collaboration and exploration of the content.
