Crank Creativity Box – Middle School STEAM project

Here is a great STEM project for middle school students – Make a custom crank project!

This is both an engineer and a designer project. I would love to see a project that had multiple cranks to tell a complex story!
I used electrical wires that an electrician was going to throw away for the wires. Let’s make something fun!

Useful links for teachers:

This site holds the resources for Innovative Arts class, a class that replaced our technology class in our middle school. Students learn to create as engineers, designers, and more. At the same time, we are learning about our brains/mindsets (‘Puzzle‘), engage technology (‘Shift‘) and the creative process (‘Create‘).

New resources are being added constantly, so I send out a weekly roundup email with all of the new resources. Sign up to stay in the loop.
