“Learning how energy is all around us and how the conversion of energy can help us throughout out our daily routines.”
Students are currently working on their
Project Lead the Way Module: Energy Conversion
where they will be exploring different forms of energy through different activities within the module.
Activity 1: What is energy conversion?
In the first part of the module, students were exposed to the engineer design process and potential and kinetic energy. Students explore the Vex IQ Boxes and construct a stationary bicycle that is used to demonstrate energy conversion.
Activity 2: Energy Conversion in Action
In the second part of the module, students are exposed 3 different stations in which they will be exploring different objects that portray a particular type of energy conversion. Students are then to draw, sketch, take a pictures (before and after), and label the type of energy they experience.
Activity 3: Light Up Your World
