Home Learning iSTEAM Challenge: Week 1

371 0

AcadeCap’s iSTEAM team would like to introduce our newest project: Home Learning iSTEAM Challenges! Each week, the iSTEAM blog will be updated with a new challenge that can be completed with materials found in the home. Families are encouraged to participate and send their photos in to us so we can post them to the blog. 

Over the long weekend, we challenge you to create a Marble Roller Coaster. You can use materials found around the house such as recycled materials, paper plates, cardboard tubes, building blocks, straws, cups, anything you can think of!

Try to see how long, big or tall you can build your roller coaster.
Can you get the marble to do a loop?
How fast can your marble travel the roller coaster?

Remember to send in your photos when finished!
Good luck!


About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
