Due:

Week of Sep. 27 - Oct. 1

Effler Block 2: 9/27 - 10/1

This week we will be finishing Unit 2 – The Engineering Design Process and beginning Unit 3 – Matter. 

Standard(s): 

5.ETS1: Engineering Design 

1) Research, test, re-test, and communicate a design to solve a problem. 

2) Plan and carry out tests on one or more elements of a prototype in which variables are controlled 

and failure points are considered to identify which elements need to be improved. Apply the results of 

tests to redesign the prototype. 

5.ETS2: Links Among Engineering, Technology, Science, and Society 

1) Use appropriate measuring tools, simple hand tools, and fasteners to construct a prototype of a new 

or improved technology. 

2) Describe how human beings have made tools and machines (X-ray cameras, microscopes, satellites, 

computers) to observe and do things that they could not otherwise sense or do at all, or as quickly or 

Efficiently.
