Aimed at lower elementary, STEM – Dynamics contains explorations for each level, prompting children to have in-depth conversations based on a spiraled set of explorations.
The accompanying teacher’s notes/manual is carefully designed to give enough information and guidance so that teachers immediately feel comfortable presenting the fundamental concepts.
Includes experiment cards and Teacher’s Manual. Concepts touched up are as follows:
- Terms and etymology on dynamics
- Historical figures
- Friction of surfaces
- Friction and heat
- Friction and movement
- Roller coaster design and operation. STEM design project
- Action and reaction
- Spring scale
- Mass and inertia
- Passenger vehicle – STEM design project
- Balanced and unbalanced forces
- Self Powered Car – STEM design project
STEM – Dynamics, an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM – Dynamics.
