Synopsis

Launch a new generation of students into catapult- and boat-building--plus glove- and greenhouse-making--with this newly refreshed resource. Four sets of well-loved activities have been repackaged in one convenient volume that seamlessly combines hands-on experience with intriguing engineering concepts. Perfect for inspiring interest in STEM topics, the activities encourage high school classes to learn by doing. The activities will get your students fully engaged in meaningful explorations of concepts such as* buoyancy and friction (through boats) * torsion and elasticity (catapults) * heat transfer and insulation (gloves) * plant biology, thermodynamics, and energy transfer (greenhouses) Best of all, Science By Design is written with the needs of time-starved teachers like you in mind. Each of the four units provides thorough explanations, materials lists, cost and timing estimates, and teaching suggestions. You also get ideas for assessment and student portfolios, plus lists of connections to national standards.

And if those aren't enough, don't miss the bonus resources called "side roads"--off-the-beaten-path investigations that let you and your students delve further into the links between inquiry and design.
