Bat Caves – A STEM Activity

Children learn through experiences, and the earlier they are exposed to STEM-based hands-on learning experiences, the better.

Engineering activities, by their nature, are an inquiry-based pedagogical strategy that promotes learning across disciplines.

Engineering curricula introduces students of all ages to everyday applications of science, mathematics, technology and engineering that match their values and view of the world.

This, and many of our other activities are designed to engage students in hands-on STEM experiences in order to improve their understanding of fundamental concepts in a way that capitalizes upon their design, visualization, creativity and teamwork skills and yearnings.

For this activity, students were given sand blocks and toothpicks. They were told to construct a bat cave using the materials. After they finished, they teamed up with their friends to create even bigger structures!
