Project-Based Engineering Lessons

The Instructables Workshop for Young Engineers offers a collection of project-based lessons for students in grades 5–9 that explore basic principles of physics and structural and mechanical engineering. Project-based learning is designed to promote investigation, critical thinking, and hands-on subject matter and allow students to control the direction and pace of their learning. Teachers can access video instructions for student model-building projects of many kinds that meet these criteria, including Slingshot Rockets, Rubberband Helicopters, Extending Grabbers, Tornado Tower, Marble Roller Coaster, Simple Sail Car, and Truss Bridges. The projects can be used in after-school learning environments or in the classroom as enrichment activities.
