STEM Underwear Activity
Let’s put on our thinking caps and delve into a STEM activity that’s both educational and hilarious. Challenge your students to design a hamper that will hide the ghoulish, greenish glow. We start by showing students what a hamper is. Then we take a pair of our creepy pair of underwear art projects and add a green glow stick to it with tape This makes it glow. Then, we show them how a hamper can hide some of the glow, but now all of it.
Finally, students are encouraged to come up with hampers that would block the ghoulish, greenish glow. They come up with a few plans that may work. Next, they pick a plan they want to try. Finally, they work with the material to make a hamper to test this out. I love to provide brown paper bags, white paper bags, tape, and copy paper.
This activity sparks their creativity and introduces them to the principles of design thinking and problem-solving. It also provides an excellent opportunity to discuss scientific concepts like light and blocking light.
This is hard to show because we test the hampers out with a dark room and glow sticks on our Creepy Pair of Underwear art projects.
