Here is the basic structure. We are currently seeking some guidance and ideas to help make this a more successful project.
Key Science Topics
- Newton's Three Laws
- Conservation of Energy
- Work and Power
- Kinetic and Potential Energy
We are thinking that students can create Design Teams of 1-3 students to come up with a blueprint of a design of an experiment/simulation/construction of their learning. We are thinking that they will have to incorporate at least three of these major ideas into a seamless presentation of some manner.
We are stuck on the following
- A launch to kick it off
- More precise parameters to really make this an engaging higher order learning opportunity and not just a cookie cutter spew of facts looking pretty
- Something that is different from how things have always been taught
As always I will share the results when all is said and done. If you have a suggestion or idea we would love to hear from you.
