Students will first learn about the engineering design process. They will then be presented with the challenge of how to survive on a deserted island. Their biggest challenge will be shelter from the wind at night. Students will follow the constraints and build a structure that will withstand a wind storm (from a hair dryer). They will test their design in class and share what they have learned with their classmates. This class does not aim to teach any industry specific engineering...
Students will learn: • How to Use the Engineering Design Process • How to Work in groups collaborating with peers • How to Design a prototype • How to Plan and sketch a design • How to Execute a design with available resources • How to Self Evaluate Work
This class will include an in class project to be completed with materials acquired before the start of class. No outside homework will be assigned.
MATERIALS UPDATE: In the midst of quarantines and closures I am aware that it may be difficult for some families to obtain all supply items listed for the class. I have been contacted by several parents that they are missing an item or two. That’s okay. In fact it adds a great learning component to the class and fits in will during these times. Although a list of recommended supplies is given, you can take the class without the exact supplies. Sticks from outside can be substituted for craft sticks, wrapping paper for newspaper, a cereal box for the index cards; are just a few examples. Encourage your child to be creative just as if they were stranded on the desert island with Sir Charles! Children are remarkably resourceful and have come up with some great substitutions over my last few days of classes. If you are able to a pick through a craft bin or still have an open store nearby, the list of minimum supplies is: • Hair Dryer • Index cards • Construction paper • Newspaper • Craft sticks or Popsicle sticks • Ruler • Tape (masking, clear, duct, packing, etc...) • Straws
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental supervision recommended while using scissors and craft materials.
