WHAT STUDENTS LEARN / PROJECTS
Grades 3-5 Water, Water Everywhere: Designing Water Filters
An introduction to the problem of water pollution—and to the solutions. Students will investigate the properties of filter materials, then think like engineers to apply their knowledge as they plan, construct, test, and improve their own water filters.
Grades 6-8 Go Fish: Engineering Prosthetic Tails
Middle school students will plan and design prosthetic devices that could replace animal body parts — such as a fish tail, a model leg for an elephant, or the beak for an eagle.
