I'm hoping to inspire my students with technology and connect it to mathematics. We'll take on blogging, Twitter, video editing, 3D printing, Skype, and much, much more! My Fourth grade students come from a variety of backgrounds; 50 percent of my students live in high poverty areas, and about 15 percent of them are English Language Learners from South Africa, Vietnam, Nigeria, Bhutan, and other countries.
Our school is a K-5 Vermont school that loves embracing STEM activities.
We put tools into the hands of students to keep them energized. My students are an energetic and inspired group of learners who love utilizing technology.
We are requesting an Outbreak Alert: Engineering a Pandemic Response kit. In a world where we are more connected than ever, diseases can spread rapidly! Students will become biomedical engineers as they explore how to prepare for outbreaks of highly contagious diseases. They use the Engineering Design Process to design an antiviral to stop a newly discovered virus from infecting a model cell.
Students will be introduced to engineering and the
Engineering Design Process as they work together to engineer a solution to a biomedical engineering challenge. Biomedical engineers use their knowledge of biology and medicine to solve healthcare-related problems and to improve the healthcare field.
With this kit students will explore how diseases can spread, engineer an antiviral for a contagious virus, create public service announcements to inform the public, and consider what steps they should take to prevent an outbreak from becoming a pandemic.
