Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
The main STEM learning outcomes of the class are:
1) creative problem solving through engaging, exploring, questioning, explaining, elaborating and evaluating
2) persisting even when encountering an unexpected and difficult challenge (Growth Mindset)
3) recognizing opportunities for improving the design even after you think you're "done" 
4) using creativity and imagination to generate and extend a design beyond an initial idea
5) implement Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Standards for Mathematics 
As a mom, I have played with Hot Wheels throughout my kid's elementary years.  As a Public School teacher, I have taught this unit of study to fourth grade students. As an Outschool Teacher I have taught this course as a live class for several years.
Learners are expected to interact in the classroom and respond accordingly by the end of the week.
(Hot Wheels can be purchased at stores like Target, Walmart and Amazon for about $20).  

Straight tracks 
Two or more Hot Wheels cars or vehicles
Stacked books or raised platforms of various heights (such as a coffee table, a desk, a bookcase, countertop, or a kitchen table)
Items to attach to the cars: coins, paperclips, erasers
Various household items: straws, plastic bottles (full/empty), empty yogurt container, foil, plastic wrap, stuffed animals, pillows
Tape (I use Scotch tape but any will do)
Ruler or tape measure
Blow dryer or fan
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No formal assessment however I give feedback from any work that has been submitted or posted.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners may need help building track if this is difficult for them. Learners should have supplies close by so that when the lesson is over, they may gather the supplies they need easily.
Some lessons may incorporate Nearpod within the lesson.
