Introduction To Orthographic Projection
In this math worksheet, students examine the three dimensional drawing in order to investigate the basic concepts of orthographic projection.
Transportation Systems: Two Liter Boat Activity
Students design and build full-size boats made out of two-liter plastic bottles, chicken wire, and plywood. Then they race the boats, with the boat's designers "manning the hull", in the school's swimming pool.
Architecture: CAD Design
Learners apply computer-assisted design programs to develop sketches and technical drawings for a three-bedroom house. Working together, they develop strategies for presenting their designs, investigate building codes, and hone skills using design software during this 16-20 week program.
Box It Up
High schoolers use a six-step problem solving method to design a box/container. They are given the criteria for evaluation when presented with the problem. Students keep a notebook on processes, procedures, material, cost, design, machines, safety, and other information related to the activity. Student work is displayed throughout the building for viewing by high schoolers, teachers, and administrators.
For this examining cubes worksheet, students determine the number of cubes to create a stack to specifications. They calculate the volume of given cubes. This three-page worksheet contains 7 multi-step problems.
Learners explore oil field applications of Shape Memory Alloys. In this engineering lesson students divide into groups and research mini research applications then complete a project.
Exploring Projective Geometry
In this exploring projective geometry worksheet, students use computer software for instruction, then answer 9 questions about 3D drawings.
Great Lakes Geology and the Necessity of Locks
Three class periods are required to carry out this science lesson on glacial movement, the Great Lakes basin, and the lock system that allows travel on the lakes. It is an ambitious undertaking as your class experiments with a glacier movement table and constructs a manual lock system. The resource links no longer work, but there is plenty of material to make a complete mini-unit for your earth science or engineering class.
Exploring Maps: Navigation
Young scholars engage in a lesson plan that is concerned with the concept of navigation while research is conducted with the use of a variety of resources. The information is used to expand their perspective of the applications for navigation. The lesson plan includes background information for the teacher to use.
Students explore the concept of navigation in these two activities.
Tower Investigation and the Egg
Students build three types of towers, engineering them to hold an egg one foot high for 15 seconds. They discover that engineering designs are subject to constraints such as time, money and size specifications. In this activity students have to design and construct a tower with two of these constraints.
In this solid shapes worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 8 different problems. First, they use the figure at the top to redraw each figure with the indicated change. Then, students draw six orthographic projections of each figure as indicated.
