Easter STEM Challenge: Basket Bounce

Q: What do you get when you cross Easter, STEM, and P.E.?

A: The Basket Bounce Relay Race Challenge!  

Working against a Criteria & Constraints List, students design (individually or in partners/groups) an Easter basket that helps them transport eggs while hopping a bouncy relay!  

You can take this idea and run with it on your own, or you can find more support in the prepared lesson challenge or Easter STEM Olympics blog

  • Materials List
  • Criteria & Constraints List
  • Instructions on conducting the race with individual, partner, and group basket designs 
  • Discussion questions
  • Design analysis handouts
  • Modifications to increase/decrease difficulty for grades 2 - 8
  • Post-design extension ideas in the prepared lesson challenge
