STEM projects for children
We’re sure you’ll find yourself having fun too!
 Try the egg-drop challenge
During Easter try this egg-drop challenge ! One great way of engaging kids with engineering and introducing them to the roles of gravity, force and acceleration is by doing your very own egg-drop challenge.
The first thing you’ll need is a device to hold the egg. Why not get everyone together and brainstorm ideas for how you want your device to look?
Then comes the seriously fun part: testing out your device! If the device is successful, the egg should not break when dropped from a height. If it breaks, it just means that the design needs some tweaking. Don’t give up – use this as an opportunity to build an even better structure.
 Build a mini wind turbine
Didn’t think baking and civil engineering could go together? Think again!
As you can see in this video from STEM Inventions, one handy way to remember how quickly you should launch your helicopter is to say ‘tick-tock.’
If you follow the instructions, you should be able to get your helicopter to fly more than 20 feet (6m).
 Make a DIY bubble-blowing machine
Who knew that a Sprite bottle could be transformed into a machine that will generate hours of fun? Easter holiday entertainment sorted!
The ICE have a comprehensive range of resources aimed at all student ages to help you show and explain what civil engineering is, why it's important and what you need to do to become a civil engineer. There are also other fun projects for kids of all ages.
There resources can be found here. https://www.ice.org.uk/what-is-civil-engineering/education-resources/educational-resources/
