Delivering the Goods: A Study of Hurricanes and Hydraulics STEM Integrated Project

Every year natural disasters occur all over the world. The damage caused by natural disasters can be devastating and cause problems with food and water supplies. The 2017 hurricane in Puerto Rico is an example of what happens when supplies are available, but distribution becomes problematic. In this unit students will learn about hurricanes and des…

Through the Wall - Sustainable Wall Panel Design STEM Integrated Project

In this project, students will need to identify the best materials to use in a manufactured wall panel. They will need to justify their choices with a thorough analysis and they will create a data sheet that outlines their designed wall panel. CTE: For the Sustainable Wall Panel Project, they will be designing their own wall panel and will need t…

The Big One is Coming-Planning for a California Earthquake STEM Integrated Project

Are you ready for the Big One? To begin this project, students write an essay describing their own state of preparedness. Then, working in seismic engineering teams, they engage in hands on labs and computer simulations to learn about wave properties and how loads affect structures. They study plate tectonics and interview survivors of the 1994 …
