Who’s ready to have some fun with STEM?

As part of our system’s efforts to increase STEM opportunities for all students, we would like to invite all families with students in grades K-8 to participate in a home STEM bingo game. Engaging in STEM and design thinking activities has shown to have tremendous impact in increasing students’ understanding of critical thinking, problem solving, and creative thinking.

Over the next two months, we invite you to work as a family to complete any five (or more!) challenges from the bingo cards below.

STEM Bingo

The five challenges you work on do not have to be done in a row on the card, simply choose the five your family is most interested in completing.

When you are done, please complete this Google Form with information on the challenges you completed and photos showing your family working together on these tasks. Please complete the form by Monday, January 4.

All students who complete this challenge and submit photos through the Google Form above will receive a laser engraved keepsake from the OMS Gator Garage Makerspace.

We hope you have fun as a family with this challenge. We can not wait to see all the great solutions you come up with!

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. John Omundsen via email at john.omundsen@capecharterschools.org
