These are opportunities for independent research and presentation. Fill out the Engineering Design Process outline with your ideas. Check with Mr. Collins before getting started.

  • Sounds – Record mystery sounds around the school (about 30 sec) and submit to the Sounds of School competition. These will be played on the morning announcements. Students will be invited to guess what they are hearing and submit their answers. An entry drawn from the right answers will get a prize.
  • Waves – Create a demonstration of the range of waves that we encounter everywhere – water, light, radio, heat, … Include the entire range of wave frequencies for comparison.
  • Engineering Everywhere – Prepare a 5-minute activity that shows the connection between arts and sciences. This should have some relationship to another subject. For example, for “force” in science, build a balloon rocket car and show how the escaping air propels the car.
