Engineering a Nation!
T3 Descriptions (Continued)
Grade 8: Engineering a Nation
Teachers: Marlia Bell & Ellen Hansen
Join as we engage in thematic units based on influential individuals from American history and key 8th grade science content. Students will have a chance to develop skills in the Science and Engineering Practices as outlined in the new Next Generation Science Standards.
Classmates will engage in group work as they problem solve to accomplish a given task related to the theme. As part of the process, students will test their designs, analyze data, and modify accordingly to obtain optimal results. Experiences gained at each session will build on one another so it is very important to attend each class. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting year of American ingenuity!
Sessions will meet on the following Thursdays: 9/22; 10/20; 11/17; 1/26; 2/23; 3/23
