I am working with another one of our great staff members in trying to develop a project that allows students some freedom in their learning and possibilities to showcase their knowledge while providing some parameters so it is not pure chaos.
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
- 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
