Standards:

 

  • Plan & carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled & failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Elementary /// Engineering Design)

  • Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Engineering Design)

  • Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Engineering Design)

  • Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Earth and Space Science /// Earth and Human Activity)

  • Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. [Examples : electric circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar heater that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints: materials, cost, or design time.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Design, evaluate, & refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment & biodiversity.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Life Science /// Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics)

  • Analyze data to support the claim that Newton's second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, & its acceleration. [Objects subject to a net unbalanced force, e.g., an object falling , rolling down a ramp, or a moving- pulled by a constant force.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Physical Science /// Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions)

  • Design, build, & refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Physical Science /// Energy)

  • Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Earth and Space Science /// Earth and Human Activity)

  • Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object & the mass of the object.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Physical Science /// Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions )

  • Construct, use, & present arguments to support the claim that when the motion energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
