Junk Production Assembly

The day before parent-teacher conferences we had participated in an educational STEM assembly.  All K-12 students were put into multi-grade groups.  Each group took turns choosing a piece of junk from the central pile.  Then they had 20 minutes to create a product using at least 10 of their items.  Each group was given the same amount of duct tape and wire.  Then they had 10 minutes to create a commercial.  Then we all went back to the bleachers to watch the "commercials" for each product.  The kids were so creative!  It was very interesting watching them work together and make their plans.  I think that the kids thought it was interesting and fun!  They also made some new friends along the way!
The 12 teams were at their table waiting to choose their objects.
