ScienceWise Course: Engineering Design Challenges

October 5, 2019

Time: 8:30AM to 12:30PM

 

Price: $25/course - Registration will open soon. 

GRADUATE CREDIT IS availalbe for an ADDITIONAL charge PAYaBLE TO BAKER UNIVERSITY. INFORMATION WILL BE HANDED OUT AT COURSE. 

Join the fun of introducing monthly engineering design challenges to your science curriculum. Join us to participate in a hands-on workshop centered on children's literature and solving a real world problem. Educators leave with a packet of 10 challenges that they can implement in their classrooms. 

Presenter: Nancy Smith, Olathe School District

K-2-ETSJ-J Engineering Design
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

K-2-ETSJ-2 Engineering Design

Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem

K-2-ETSJ-3 Engineering Design

Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs
