STEM Challenge #1: Amazing Mazes!

Come for a live show-and-tell of your Amazing Mazes STEM Challenge!

Your challenge this week is to make a maze! It could be for a marble, for a stuffy, or for you.

Explore with your grownup what different mazes might look like, then you can build your own out of anything you can think of!

To get started, let's think about— 

  1. What is a maze? Find examples online for inspiration.
  2. Think about your maze. What will it look like? How big will it be?
  3. Make your maze! How can you build it? Who can help you build it?
  4. Experiment and make it better. Does your maze work how you want it to? How might you change it to make it even better?

STEM Challenge #2: Spooky Movers

Come for a live show-and-tell of your Amazing Mazes STEM Challenge!

Do you want to make a special Halloween character? Or build something that can pop up and say “Boo!”? Here’s the challenge, though: Whatever you make has to move! You can add strings to pull, moving parts, or even add something onto a toy that already moves. To get started, think about...

  1. What makes something spooky? And what does it mean to move?
  2. Think about how your creation will look, sound, and move.
  3. Make your spooky creation! How can you create it? Who can help you create it?
  4. Test it out and make it better. Does it work how you want it to? How might you change it to make it even better?

You can work on your challenge all week, and meet me on Saturday for a live show-and-tell at Beanstalk. I can’t wait to see what you invent!

STEM Challenge #3: Together, Apart

Come for a live show-and-tell of your Amazing Mazes STEM Challenge!

Invent something that can bring us together. People live in all different parts of the world, and right now, even if we do live in the same places, it’s hard for us to be together. Do you have an idea for a machine, a dance move, a work of art, or a structure that you think can bring people together? Or maybe you have a different idea. To get started, think about...

  1. What does it mean to be together? Do we have to be sitting next to each other, or can we be together if we’re far away?
  2. Think about what your invention will be. How will it work? What will it look like?
  3. Create a prototype.
  4. Test it out and make it better. Do you like how it is, or are there ways to make it better? 

You can work on your challenge all week, and meet me on Saturday for a live show-and-tell at Beanstalk. I can’t wait to see what you invent!

STEM Challenge #4: Cozy Creation

Come for a live show-and-tell of your Amazing Mazes STEM Challenge!

It’s fall, and it’s starting to get cold outside! I’ve always wished I had something that could keep me warm that was better than just a blanket--better than warm, cozy! Let’s create something to keep us cozy when it’s chilly outside. To get started, think about. . .

  1. When do you feel the coziest? What does it mean to be warm and cozy?
  2. Think about what your creation might look like--is it a drawing? A dance? A machine?
  3. Make your cozy creation! How can you create it? What tools do you need? Who can help you create it?
  4. Test it out and make it better. Does it work how you want it to? How might you change it to make it better? 

You can work on your challenge all week, and meet me on Saturday for a live show-and-tell at Beanstalk. I can’t wait to see what you invent!

A NEW CHALLENGE EVERY WEEK

Every Sunday, Ms. Soleil will send you a new challenge. Challenges are designed to be approached in multiple ways, freeing up your child's creativity.

THE PERFECT OFF-SCREEN ACTIVITY

Your child will have the whole week to work on their challenge at their own pace and away from the screen.

LIVE "SHOW AND TELL"

Every Saturday morning, we’ll host a live “show and tell” so your child can share what they’ve worked on and learn from others.
