Come see how to get from the outgoing science standards to the new SEEd Standards. Participants tackle an engineering design challenge in incremental steps. They first design a cart that can roll "from here to there" and identify the Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) being utilized. They then continue with an investigation involving gravity and explore how start position on a ramp affects the distance the cart travels. Before the participants go on to the next part, they determine which Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) are being addressed. The final challenge incorporates the participants' knowledge of magnetism into their cart design to meet new challenges. This investigation develops understanding of engineering design concepts and provides opportunities for students to engage in engineering practices. The Cross Cutting Concepts are determined to show how the parts are interrelated.
