Challenges include: balloon tower, index card tower and paper chair challenge!
I suggest discussing which 21st century skills will be needed to do each activity before students do it, and then use them to reflect after the challenges. In the past when this was done, I used SECRET skills to do this.

Acid Base
Conditions of Use:

Students are introduced to the properties of acids and bases, as well as how to name them. This lesson
takes place over two class periods usually. We begin by discussing what students know about acids and
bases. We try to create a student generated list of features. This has ranged from a very small list to
large list in the past, depending on student experiences. Next, I give a lesson on the definition of acids
and bases, followed by some properties. Next, students use a lab to experience and determine which is
an acid or a base (and the relevant strengths) using a stations lab.
Following the lab, students may choose to work in groups or with me in a smaller group on naming and
writing formula for acids and bases. They then practice naming and correct as a group.

Summary: This year my students created a concept map to summarize their learning in the science unit of
animal adaptations and classification. I created a list of terms and concepts that students must have on
their map, and offered opportunities for students to add their own knowledge. Prior to the assignment
the students and I created an assessment rubric to evaluate their learning.

Applying STEM: The Brain Safety Challenge
Conditions of Use:

As part of a unit on neuroscience, 6th graders in Channa Comer's class work in teams to design football helmets to protect against brain injury. Using eggs to model the brain, groups design helmets that will keep the egg from cracking. Channa takes her class through the steps that engineers use when working on a design, from brainstorming to final testing. The students work within two constraints-- the helmet has to stay on the head and the helmet has to prevent the skull from cracking. After the groups work together to design helmets, they test, revise, and retest their designs as necessary.
