Description

This is a STEM course, during which teachers will be introduced to the basic concepts of Engineered Systems and how to apply them to design projects. Participants will learn about dynamics from first principles, by making quick working models of planes, testing them using the Power Anchor (TM), recording results and modifying the design. Projects without Power Anchor are also included in the provided resources.

Participants will manufacture a mechanised device which uses wind energy to rotate a crank. This provides opportunity for innovative and creative thinking via CAD or modelling with card.  CAD files included.

Course costs include all materials needed for manufacture of products throughout the day.  Teaching program in NESA program builder format included.

Participants will engage in discussion about problem / project based learning, its application in the classroom and how to develop appropriate assessment methodologies.

Targeted concepts are Project Based Learning, Design Thinking, Computational and Algorithmic thinking and Integrated Learning.
