Motor Mania: Revving Up for Technological Design
Frazier, Wendy M.; Sterling, Donna R.
Technology Teacher, v67 n5 p5-12 Feb 2008
Students get very excited when confronted with problems that they find meaningful. Problem-based learning lets students solve problems using the strategies and tools that scientists use. While developing solutions via technological design and construction, students experience firsthand the relationship between science and technology. To capture students' interest, Motor Mania was selected as a theme, since the students are only a few years away from being able to drive and are very excited about cars. (Contains 7 figures.)
