"engineering design process to: (1) design and build a crane out of cardboard; (2) figure out ways to reinforce the arms so they don't collapse under a heavy load; (3) build a crank handle; and (4) improve their cranes based on the results of their testing. "

### iLearn Technology » Blog Archive » DIY: a maker site for kids- 1 views

•
"DIY is an online club for kids to earn maker skills. Kids (otherwise known as Makers) share their creations and work with a larger online community and collect patches for the skills they learn. Each skill has a set of challenges that help kids learn different techniques and create something fantastic. When a child completes a maker challenge, they can add photos and video to their online portfolio to show off their creation."

### Forces and Graphing - Activity - www.TeachEngineering.org- 0 views

•
"explore forces acting on an object, to practice graphing experimental data, and/or to introduce the algebra concepts of slope and intercept of a line. A wooden 2x4 beam is set on top of two scales. Students learn how to conduct an experiment by applying loads at different locations along the beam, recording the exact position of the applied load and the reaction forces measured by the scales at each end of the beam"

### Sum It Up: An Introduction to Static Equilibrium - Activity - www.TeachEngineering.org- 0 views

•
"Students are introduced to static equilibrium by learning how forces and torques are balanced in a well-designed engineering structure. A tower crane is presented as a simplified two-dimensional case. Using Popsicle sticks and hot glue, student teams design, build and test a simple tower crane model according to these principles, ending with a team competition. "

"Engineering offers more career options than any other discipline. It's a profession that can take you from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space, from within the microscopic structures of the human cell to the top of the tallest skyscrapers. Whether it's cell phones, digital cameras, DVD's, or facial recognition devices that can pick out a terrorist in a crowded football stadium, engineers are behind almost all of today's exciting technology. Engineers are problem solvers who search for quicker, better, and less expensive ways to use the forces and materials of nature to meet today's challenges. Engineering students have their pick of many fields. From electrical to civil to aeronautical to biomedical, every discipline within engineering will lead to an exciting and rewarding career. In this activity, you will research one type of engineering"

### eGFI - For Teachers » Lesson: Design From Nature- 0 views

•
"how engineers can use biomimicry to enhance their designs. They learn how careful observation of nature - in this case, reverse engineering a flower to glean design ideas - can lead to new innovations and products. "

### eGFI - For Teachers » Lesson: Working Together to Live Together- 0 views

•
"experience civil and environmental engineering by planning a housing development while also protecting the native species that live there. They conduct research, draw plans, make brochures, and give presentations"

### Classroom-Ready STEM Lessons: Winter Tech- 0 views

•
"As winter approaches, it's easy to forget that parts of the planet rarely rise above the freezing mark. These icy outposts often hold vast deposits of oil, gas, and minerals. They also present challenges for cold-region engineers, such as the effect of low temperatures on construction materials or how to keep pipelines flowing. Your designers will warm up to cryogenics with this month's activity. See if any need mittens! "

### Tunnel Through! - Activity - www.TeachEngineering.org- 0 views

•
"Tunnel Through! Contributed by: Integrated Teaching and Learning Program, College of Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder Photo shows two men looking at metal prongs coming through the side of a mountain with a crumbling rock pile in front of them. Workers look at the TBM cutterhead after it reached daylight in April 1997, after a 2.5-year journey excavating through Yucca Mountain, NV. TBM is a tunnel boring machine. Students apply their knowledge about mountains and rocks to transportation engineering, with the task of developing a model mountain tunnel that simulates the principles behind real-life engineering design. Student teams design and create model tunnels through a clay mountain, working within design constraints and testing for success; the tunnels must meet specific design requirements and withstand a certain load.

### Rock Cycle Simulation Lab - Science Teacher Resources - TeachersPayTeachers.com- 0 views

•
"This lab walks students through modeling rock cycle processes, and asks them to make analogies between the activity and the rock cycle."

### Interactives . The Rock Cycle . How Rocks Change- 1 views

•
"Does it seem to you that rocks never change? For example, if you find a chunk of granite today, can you expect that it will still be granite at the end of your lifetime? That may well be true - but only because our lifetimes are very short relative to the history of the earth."

### Cassini Solstice Mission: Scientist for a Day- 0 views

•
"The Science Planning Team picked three targets to be imaged. Pick your favorite target, and write a persuasive essay describing the scientific merits of your choice. Your decision should be based on which image would yield the most scientific results. Just like actual scientists do, you are to explain what you hope to learn from the image you have selected. The artistic value of the image can be an added bonus to your decision."
