Unit 1: Engineering Design
These activities introduce the process which engineers use when creating, developing, improving, or implementing ideas. The goal is to help students understand this process when coming up with a solution to a problem. In these experiments a problem has been presented with some questions to think about. Some ideas have been presented in helping them come up with a solution. Students should take notes as they work through the process. Length of time for the project will be different for each individual.
Unit 2: Backyard Ecosystem
In this unit we will take a look at some plants and animals and how they work together to give us all the food that we need for a healthy life. There will be make-at-home and outdoor activities to compliment the lessons.
