Engineering: "A Piece of the Action." A Mini-Course.
It is the purpose of this unit of study to acquaint students with the world of engineering. The activities are intended to simulate problems which might be undertaken by engineers and illustrate the sequence of events leading to their solution. The material is intended for use in the eighth or ninth grades as a supplement or for inclusion into the ongoing science, social studies, and mathematics program. The course is designed to run two to three weeks. Most of the activities are assigned to be completed in a single class period and are designed to produce student involvement. The format of the Teacher Guide includes: title of activity, the major ideas, the behavioral objectives and possible strategy types. Materials and equipment, as well as resources and references, are presented. Suggested answers to questions given and sample data for the experiments are provided. A student activity sheet is given for each lesson. (EB)
