Hands-on engineering lessons get students involved
We are excited to offer the following lessons for spring 2019.
Cracking the code
In this lesson, students learn how a computer "thinks" in order to teach it how to do new tasks. Using the Hour of Code, we introduce students to programming concepts and basic algorithmic thinking. Teachers must have an internet-connected lab with computers for all students.
Students work in pairs to create a battery from household items that will turn on an LED light. Students learn how material science engineers study the mechanical, electrical and chemical properties of materials to create new materials or improve everyday materials.
