STEMulating Design Challenges in Scienceis a guide to implementing design challenges in the science classroom. This resource provides background knowledge on the necessary skills and concepts needed to help students prepare for the future. It covers the basic components of a STEM classroom, guidance on how to use an engineering notebook along with how to implement the engineering design process using facilitation questions and sentence stems to support student growth and achievement to successfully complete design challenges.

For each grade level, there are four design challenges that encourage students to think about real-world issues and how they would solve them using available tools and materials. Some challenges even include a budget component. Each challenge is aligned to the TEKS, which are listed in the teacher guide portion of the challenge. The appendix sections provide more information and tips about implementing critical skills, setting up engineering notebooks, and establishing student expectations and roles. The appendices also include reproducible masters and sample rubrics.
