Engineering Lab will explore the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. In each unit we will apply the engineering process and find solutions to real world problems.
A list of general activities and engineering/science fields will be available on Google Classroom.
- We will open class with watching a short video of Engineers and innovators at work.
- I will briefly introduce the STEM field that we will be studying.
- The majority of the class will be spent in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration.
- We will finish class by debriefing; reflecting on what we learned in our lab.
Refer frequently to Applied Science Videos and Assignment pages for useful and/or missed class video links. Engineering Lab Resources page is loaded with valuable links for students and parents.
MISSED CLASS MAKE/UP WORK = SEE ASSIGNMENT PAGE
If a student misses class, he/she might miss the first day of a multi day project. Because of this, the student should view any missed videos and read missing content posted on the Assignment/calendar page.
GRADING RUBRIC - 80% Participation – 20% Lab Journal
Participation points will be posted online with 5 points per class. If a student misses a class, they are not penalized. If student missed a multi-day project, they are responsible for joining a team and participating fully in the following class.
Students may always receive extra credit by sharing a current science event.
CLASS PROJECTS & ASSIGNMENTS
Most projects and labs will be completed within the class period. Homework will be assigned periodically. Theses assignments will include watching a posted video in preparation for a STEM lab. There will also be Lab Journal checks once a month.
