• Magnets Like to Move It, Move It
    These scientific investigations will engage students in understanding the force of magnetism and how this force can be used for work.  The students will begin the unit by forming generalizations about magnets and their forces through their own knowledge and scientific investigations.  The students will explore the variations between different magnet strengths.  Finally, the students engineer a system that will utilize magnets to propel and guide a vehicle through a track.  Students will use ...

    A Teacher Institute for Professional Practice in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  Imagine a dramatically new approach to teaching and learning characterized by challenging, problem-based learning experiences that tear down compartmentalized disciplines and curriculums, and engage students in scientific inquiry and the engineering design process. Imagine a learning environment rich in opportunities for discovery that not only build scientific and engineering expertise but also foster teamwork, communication skills, critical thinking and creativity. Now imagine that these environments and experiences are available to every student, in every school, in every community....
