Groovy Lab Blowing in the Wind
Engineering design challenge - a lesson in rocket science
You are a groovy aerospace engineer and the head of Project Apollo contracted by NASA during the Apollo era in 1969. Using only the materials in your groovy lab in a box, can you design, build, and launch a rocket that travels the farthest vertical distance to the moon? Explore force and motion; newton’s third law: action-reaction, investigate potential and kinetic energy associated with rockets and learn the groovy history of the Apollo.
Groovy Lab in a Box creates hands-on STEM projects for children ages 8 and up • Founded by two female science professionals turned educators
Each kit contains all materials needed to complete the box activities • A 20+ custom-designed, subject- specific Lab Notebook • Access to our Beyond...in a Box web portal for extended learning opportunities and additional activities • An Engineering Design Challenge – the culmination of the children’s learning
Utilizes the Engineering Design Process and inquiry-based learning • Incorporates Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) • Focuses on teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) • Brings the FUN back into learning
Eco-Friendly In Every Box, Lab Notebooks and Groovy boxes are 100% recyclable and biodegradable • Groovy boxes are made with 100% recycled content with post-industrial and post-consumer waste • Eco-friendly supplies included for investigations and Engineering Design Challenge • Teach about being eco-friendly and encourage STEMists to upcycle materials in investigations
