### Questions?

Welcome

- Introductions
- Center for STEM Education and Research

Goals for the Morning

- Overview of TEEMS
- Experience lessons
- Training opportunities

Do We Teach engineering or Engineering?

engineering–little “e” – used as a verb

to teach all students to think or learn to engineer or use engineering concepts

Engineering–big “E” – used as a noun

prepare students to be Engineers – career oriented

TEEMS

- Leverages technological design challenges
- Environmental Context
- Grand Challenges for Engineering

Grand Challenges for Engineering

- Grade 3: Every Drop Matters
- Provide Access to Clean Water
- Grade 4: The Power of Solar
- Make Solar Energy Affordable
- Grade 5: Community Connections
- Restore and Improve Urban Infrastructure

Ideas we want students to “get inside of” and retain after they’ve forgotten many of the details.

Based on Achieving Scientific Literacy: From Purpose to Practices by

- Lesson 17 Standards
- Describe the design process as a method of developing solutions to problems.
- Apply a design process that includes defining a problem, generating ideas, selecting a solution, making an item, evaluating it, and presenting results to solve a technological problem.
- Brainstorm and list ideas when solving a problem or designing an object.
- Report on a topic with appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details while speaking clearly and at an understandable pace. (correlates to ELA 4.28)

Community Connections

Design Challenge

The year 2037 seems very far away, but it is never too early to plan ahead. Your challenge is to plan improvements to the infrastructure of a community, so that it is prepared to meet the needs of the people who live there in the year 2037. You may choose your own community or any town or city that you can research. You will need to know or learn about the community’s current infrastructure. Your solution must be based on what you have learned about community infrastructure. You also should brainstorm unique ideas that may seem crazy now, but may be the solutions of the future! After you have used the technological design process to develop a solution, your team will present it to the class.

Building Block Overview

- explore the history of communication technologies
- apply concepts of motion
- compare the modes of transportation
- humans meet the need for emergency services
- use mean, median, and mode to analyze real data about population and traffic congestion

Exploration Lessons

- Lesson 7
- students learn about modes of transportation found in different types of communities including rural, suburban, and urban areas.
- students use the design process to construct balloon vehicles that represent cars, vans, buses, and trains, which will be used in a design and problem-solving activity in Lesson #8
- Lesson 8
- students conduct an investigationto learn about force and motion and apply knowledge of metric units of length
- students covert metric units of length and calculate mean, median, and mode of their experimental data.
- students consider natural land and water features as they determine the best way to get from point A to point B on a map.
