GoldieBlox Education:
Playing with Prototypes Early STEM Learning Kit (3rd Grade)


In the GoldieBlox: Playing with Prototypes Early STEM Learning kit, students at the third grade level will learn about using a design-based prototyping approach to improve an initial design – and they’ll do it with springs, rubber bands, and more! Revisiting vocabulary and concepts from prior learning, they will identify the ways in which force, mass, gravity, friction, weather and other factors may influence the performance of their prototypes and how to modify their designs to account for these factors. In addition, students will learn about center of gravity, balanced and unbalanced forces, failure points, and many other design and engineering concepts!
