Easter STEM Challenge: Carrot Carriage

Q: How does the Easter Bunny get around in style?

A: In a brand new carrot carriage!

In this STEM challenge, students design a carriage made primarily of carrots to help the Easter Bunny get moving with his precious Easter cargo!  Depending on the age group, the carriage should either roll downhill or propel itself on flat ground a certain distance.

You can take this idea and run with it, or get some extra support from the prepared lesson challenge or Easter STEM Olympics blog:

  • Materials list
  • Criteria & Constraints list
  • Design Analysis handouts
  • Discussion questions
  • Modifications to increase/decrease difficulty for grades 2 - 8
  • Post-design extension ideas
