Engineering for the Future

My students need supplies for the this years science elective. The engineering kits will allow students to take part in the design process and learn how to build prototype models.

My Students

I teach middle school science to a very diverse group of students. Many of my students have a learning disability or are classified as English Language Learners. On the other spectrum, I have students that are in Gifted and Talented courses. They come from a variety of cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.

My students are fascinated by all things science.

No matter what the students' level of learning or background, experiments in the classroom are always a great way to get them engaged!

My Project

In our Exploring Science elective we concentrate on project based learning. Rather then give students a specific procedure to follow, we allow the students to develop their own procedures and work cooperatively in groups. Working in groups allows the students to share their strengths and receive guidance from peers on their weaknesses.

The Thames and Kosmos kits will engage students in designing their own structures and reflecting on their methods.

These hands-on activities will get even the teens who are "too cool for school" thinking critically about engineering. Students will be able to work on the different kits at their own pace and compete with other students to judge their own success.
