In this Make-it-Take-it session, discover new ways of integrating collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity through Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) aligned STEM activities in addition to trying them out firsthand. Watch as groups of students demonstrate the 4C's as they learn the fundamentals of engineering design, sustainability, and the basic physics of forces and motion by using recycled materials to design, create and test "sliders" that they will use to compete against one another to see who can spill the least amount of water along a challenging course. Participants have the opportunity to create and test their own sliders that can then be brought back to school and shared.
