As a Pre-AICE Cambridge Science class the focus is more and more on technology. My students always want to challenge the real-life application of what we are learning, and the Sphero Mini Robot Balls in various colors will show the students how interactive and relevant science can be. The Fire and iPad tablets will provide the students with a device when needed, especially when I challenge each group to code and design an obstacle course for their Sphero Mini robot balls to breeze through. "The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineers follow when they are trying to solve a problem and design a solution for something; it is a methodical approach to problem solving." These materials will assist my students in systematically solving a problem, encountering an obstacle, and re-designing their solution, all while working collaboratively with people from varying walks of life. I want to incorporate the Engineering Design Process more and more into the district curriculum, while focusing on how technology is more than just social media. Using the iPad, I want the students, to record the steps of the process along the way, and create and edit the video to incorporate the "Art" aspect of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math). My students will also get the opportunity to build circuits both in series and parallel, and explore and demonstrate the components of electricity. The multimeters, batteries and wire cutters/strippers will help the students when we do electrical builds. I want the students to understand the power of electricity and increase their autonomy when it comes to breaking down the aspects of electricity. The Multimeter will allow the students to check to voltage, while the batteries act as an chemical energy source.
