Architecture: CAD Design
Students 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.
10th - 12th Visual & Performing Arts
Box It Up
Learners 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.
9th - 12th Math
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.
9th - 12th Science
Exploring Maps: Navigation
Students engage in a lesson 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 includes background information for the teacher to use.
9th - 12th Social Studies & History
Don't Crack Humpty
Students investigate the engineering design process and the relationship between distance, time, and speed. Using a generic car base, small groups design a device that will protect an egg on or in the car as it is rolled down a ramp at increasing slopes.
6th - 10th Technology & Engineering
Design Your Own Rube Goldberg Machine
Students design and construct a Rube Goldberg machine that accomplishes a simple task in at least ten steps. They view and discuss various Rube Goldberg designs, identify types of simple machines, and in small groups produce a schematic design labeling the parts and functions, and construct a working prototype of their design.
6th - 8th Technology & Engineering
Tower Investigation and the Egg
Middle schoolers 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. For this activity students have to design and construct a tower with two of these constraints.
6th - 8th Visual & Performing Arts
The Squeeze is On
Students investigate the force of compression and how it acts on structural components through a hands-on group project. They use everyday products such as paper, toothpicks, and tape to construct a structure that will support the weight of a cinder block for 30 sec.
