Science ALIVE Workshop Spring 2021

When: Thu, 27-May-2021 - Fri, 18-Jun-2021

Science AL!VE Workshops 2021

May-June Classroom Workshop Topics

Kindergarten/Grade 1: Engineering, Shapes & Forces

“Welcome to the exciting world of engineering! This workshop will introduce your students to the fundamentals of engineering, with a focus on shapes and forces. Students will learn about the engineering design process, and how engineers use shapes and forces to solve everyday problems. Students will test the strength of various shapes, build their geodesic domes, and learn how forces can be used to do work.”

Prescribed Learning Outcomes

  1. List and describe the steps of the engineering design process

  2. Describe what a force is

  3. Identify specific forces acting on an object

  4. Explain why engineers use the triangle as the structural shape of choice

  5. Design, build and test a geodesic dome

Grade 2/Grade 3: Mechanical Engineering & Roller Coasters

“Buckle your seatbelts and hold on tight as we learn all about roller coasters! This workshop will introduce your students to mechanical engineering, with a focus on roller coaster design. Students will learn about the engineering design process, and what makes a fun and safe roller coaster. Students will design, build, and test their own marble-track paper roller coasters while considering design challenges presented by their Science AL!VE facilitators.” 

Prescribed Learning Outcomes

  1. List and describe the steps of the engineering design process

  2. Identify forces acting on roller coasters

  3. Explain how centripetal force is used in roller coaster design

  4. Design, build, and test a paper roller coaster

Grade 4/Grade 5: Electrical Engineering & Circuitry

“With great power comes… electricity! This workshop will introduce your students to electrical engineering, with a focus on circuitry. Students will learn about the engineering design process, and what components are necessary in creating an electrical circuit. Students will design, build, and test their own light-up paper torch circuits; utilizing circuitry components such as switches and LEDs.”

Prescribed Learning Outcomes

  1. List and describe the steps of the engineering design process
  2. Describe electricity in terms of charge, current, voltage, and power
  3. Compare and contrast conductors and insulators
  4. Identify components of circuits
  5. Design, build, and test an circuit

Grade 6/Grade 7: Electrical Engineering & Circuitry

“With great power comes… electricity! This workshop will introduce your students to electrical engineering, with a focus on circuitry. Students will learn about the engineering design process, what components are necessary in creating an electrical circuit, and troubleshoot common problems with circuitry. Students will design, build, and test their own touch-sensitive, light-up paper circuits; utilizing circuitry components such as resistors and RBG LEDs.”

Prescribed Learning Outcomes

  1. List and describe the steps of the engineering design process
  2. Describe electricity in terms of charge, current, voltage, and power
  3. Describe series and parallel circuits
  4. Identify components of circuits
  5. Design, build, and test an RBG Touchcube Circuit
