How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the nature of science through testing and modifying the "dart" paper airplane. 
These include creativity, trial and error, success through failure, investigation and experimentation, data collection and communicating results via words, videos and images.  While doing this, students will study and apply four principles of flight: drag, lift, thrust and gravity.  

Students will work through the following steps of the engineering design process throughout the course:
Ask: Identify the Need & Constraints
Research the Problem
Imagine: Develop Possible Solutions
Plan: Select a Promising Solution
Create: Build a Prototype
Test and Evaluate Prototype
Improve: Redesign as Needed

These exercises will allow students to work at all six levels of Bloom's Taxonomy:
Remembering
Understanding
Applying
Analyzing
Evaluating
Creating   
Danielle has always been interested in engineering (designing, building and testing).  Her Master's of Science Education K-8 program included engineering education as one of the core topics.  She brought the knowledge and practices learned to her own classes.  Paper airplanes are a fun and readily available means to repeat the engineering process many times, in a short amount of time, while learning a great amount of the science (concepts and thinking/processes) involved.  Danielle has vast experience designing and facilitating inquiry based activities for students of all ages, as well as modifying an activity to make it a great fit for a specific age range.  This class has been designed for the learner to have time to take on a building challenge, followed by talking about it with peers to gain new insight, and then repeating the process.  This is a great combination for successful learning.   
Students will need access to the following common household and school items throughout the class. I will post the materials needed for that week's class 1-2 days prior. • A notebook or journal (for each class and for the homework) • pen/pencil • 3 colored pencils or markers • Printer/notebook or loose leaf paper (at least 5 sheets per class) • Various thicknesses of paper/material • Timing device (portable) • Calculator • Scissors • Ruler/measuring tape/yard or meter stick (you may also print a guide, make a paper or string one) • Tape/string/yarn/twine • Paper clips or other clip ons like barrettes, bobby pins, etc. (a few) • Other household items for modifying their paper airplane (as their creativity demands)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
During class, students will be asked to test out and fly their planes.  Please assist your students in finding the best set up to do so that allows for flying space of about 15 feet.  Students may step away from their computer/device to fly their planes, with a timer, and then return to their computer/device and the class after the allotted time.
