Young scholars apply binary code in software applications for computer engineers. In this binary code lesson, students read about binary code and its applications to computer engineers. They download software and read an online binary clock. Advanced young scholars may build a binary clock from a kit.
Students explore the composition and practical application of parallel circuitry, compared to series circuitry. They design and build parallel circuits and investigate their characteristics, and apply Ohm's law. They recognize that electrical engineers, materials scientists/engineers, mechanical engineers, and physicists contribute to the development of electronic technologies.
The animated S2 Unit will use the adventures of a Super Hero and her sidekick to teach basic science and math concepts. Educators can use comic books, Saturday Morning Cartoons and the adventures of Super Heroes to teach a nine-week science and math unit. This unit will cover Metric Measurement.
Get those kids brainstorming about the types of jobs or careers they'd love to have. Then have them dive into a career-focused research project. Pupils take an interest survey, discuss career clusters, then work through the provided worksheets to start researching a potential career. Additionally, they write a paper describing that career, why they want to pursue it, and what they need to do to reach their goals.
Elementary schoolers identify the three methods of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. The lesson is mostly lecture-based. When the teacher has finished the presentation, groups of pupils get into teams and they must work together to answer questions posed by the teacher (and embedded in the plan), which will serve to reinforce what they have heard during the lecture. Some terrific extension activities and websites are also present.
Young scholars explore ways a sextant can be a reliable tool that is still being used by today's navigators and how computers can help assure accuracy when measuring angles. This activity will show how computers can be used to understand equations even when knowing how to do the math is unknown.
Young scholars explore primary sources about immigration. In this research instructional activity, students will use passages from a variety of sources to assist them in understanding this issues or immigration. Young scholars will engage in a class discussion regarding the steps needed for immigration reform in the 21st century.
Learners use the Micron Student Web site to research projected growth by job groups in the United States. They use Micron data to see the impact education has on their earning power. Students use the "Get a Job" student website to help them understand the process of applying for and interviewing for a job.
Students complete an activity that illustrates the concepts of giving accurate instructions and computer programming. They also identify the relationship of the instructions/code to computer programming. Students then create a peanut butter sandwich by writing an HTML web page and use programmable robots.
Students identify networking advantages and ways to use the Internet to network. In this networking lesson plan, students discuss careers that may change and develop as a result of networking opportunities. Students discover how the use of the Internet saved a deathly sick student then work in groups to create news reports, press conferences, and brainstorm new ways to use the Internet to network.
