In most areas of the United States, the warmer weather has both teachers and kids thinking about summer. For me, I started thinking about science that can be done outside! For instance, instead of doing our Gummy Bear Dare catapults for gummy bears, why not have kids design them for water balloons?!!! Then recently a Shaving Cream Challenge appeared on
Science is based on investigations that gather and analyze data to understand different aspects of the natural world, while engineering is about applying what we know from science (plus math, technology, and other disciplines) toward solutions that solve a problem. We talked about these differences in a previous blog, which you can check out HERE. Today, however, we want to
We released our FREE STEM Webinar: Energize Your Class With the Gummy Bear Dare. We are so excited to share this fun and rigorous STEM lesson with you! In this lab, students build a catapult to fling gummy bears over a barrier/wall using common objects you can buy at the store. This free webinar walks you through how to do
There are three dimensions to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): The science and engineering practices (referred to as “practices” or SEP) The disciplinary core ideas (DCIs) The crosscutting concepts (CCCs). When it comes to the science and engineering practices, there are slight differences between the two that make a big impact on the way you teach them in the
