COMPARE AND CONTRAST
STEM has many similarities and differences to normal science class. In both classes we do stuff that is science related and are really fun. In STEM we do a lot of building. In normal science class we do no building and more do stuff on our ipads. Here is an explanation.
In STEM and science we do things like experiments and labs. We have done 5 or 6 experiments in both classes and we have done 1-4 labs in both classes. In both classes I have a lot of fun in and really enjoy them. There are also some down sides. A down side is that we will be told to do something one way and be told to do it another way in the other class. That is how those 2 classes are similar.
In STEM we do a lot of building. In STEM we have done 3 projects with biulding. We have done spaghetti brige chalange, egg drop (only my group survived the last round of droping), and the invention project. All of these projects I had a lot of fun in. Even though egg drop and spaghetti bridge challenge were very challenging they were all fun in the end.
This is what I made in egg drop. Egg Drop is an experiment were you have to biuld a structure that falls with the egg to keep it from breaking.
In normal science class we do a lot of work on our iPads and we do a lot more experiments that don't have to do much with building. I really like this class because we do a lot of fun things. Also the teacher who teaches this class is really fun. In our experiment we do a lot more science stuff than building. That is how normal science class is different.
This is a video called elaphant toothpaste. An experiment that shows a chemical reaction.

Egg Drop: you have to build something that falls with the egg to keep it form breaking.
