LEGO WATER ACTIVITY AND DAM BUILDING STEM PROJECT


Once you have your inclined plane set up and on a tray or in a bin to catch overflow, it’s time to design your dam! This a great activity that multiple ages can work on together as well as different abilities. You can make your LEGO water dams as complex or simple as you like and tweak your design for desired results over and over again. You can also encourage older kids to sketch a design first, write predictions, record observations, and analyze the results to draw a conclusion about the effectiveness of their design.
