The "ART" of introducing engineering-based curriculum into the mainstream classroom.

Doing SCIENCE at its most fundamental level. For me, the goal of this school year has been to create well-designed science experiences for my students increasing their capacity to take on new challenges to solve real-world problems and producing solutions that are inspiring and thought provoking.  Students are empowered by these experiences and the information and understanding gathered within the curriculum.  It is the means through which learning takes place.The Alternative Energy Project in…See More

Last week, in my physics class, I was attempting to motivate my students to do research on alternative energy sources that will help to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere.  The emphasis is on replacing the production of electricity from combustion sources like coal or natural gas and favoring wind energy or solar photovoltaic cells.

Each day at the start of class I would mention yet another climate change occurrence that I had read about or heard…
