Easter is fast approaching, so it seems like the perfect time to try some of our Easter STEM Challenges perfect for little scientists. We’ve been busy testing these for you over the last couple of weeks and would LOVE to see your creations if you try any, so do share photos with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We’ve also got 100s of easy everyday science and STEM activites for kids to try too!

Top tip for STEM Challenges

My biggest tip for a STEM Challenge to be successful is for it to be simple. Simple STEM challenges are much easier for kids to complete as a team and as a parent, I know how difficult it can be if you need to go out and buy science materials.

Easter STEM Challenges

Eggy Zip Wire

Can you build a harness to transport an egg down a zip wire? This is a great activity for learning about friction. Try changing the type of string used to make the zip wire to investigate.

Save the Egg

Can you wrap an egg so well that it survives a drop down the egg chute?

Egg Chute - Easter STEM Challenge. Wrap an egg in different materials and drop it down the egg chute!

What does it weigh

How many plastic eggs weigh as much as a chocolate egg? You could try measuring eggs too, how much bigger do you think a big egg is than a small egg?

Magnet Powered Egg Cars

Put a magnet inside a plastic egg and use magnet power to make a car move.

Eggy Toothpick Towers

Can you build a tower strong enough to support an egg using just toothpicks and plasticine?

Catapult an Egg

Can you build a craft stick catapult to catapult a plastic egg? We’ve been making egg shaped targets to shoot the eggs through too!
