A World in Motion - STEM

Local STEM Activity - A World in Motion

November 21, 2019:  We participated in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) opportunity with four kindergarten classes at Fishers Elementary School. SAE (Society of Automotive Engineering) was promoting “A World in Motion” curriculum which utilizes highly interactive learning experiences. One segment of the curriculum was the “Rolling Things” project. Students explored the story, The Three Little Pigs Sledding Adventure. Based on the scientific concepts presented in the story, students explored toy cars and car performance. Students launched the cars from ramps and investigated the effects that different ramp heights and car weights have on distance traveled. Students record the results and make adjustments for performance through variable testing.  It was so much fun seeing the students participate and love STEM just as much as we do!
