Engineering Challenges in Physical Science Curriculum

With National Science Foundation funding, the Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Science Education Department and middle and high school teachers developed an engineering challenge–based physical science curriculum for middle-level students. The open-source, downloadable curriculum includes student workbooks and teacher’s guides for six topics: Solar House, Windmills, Batteries, Electromagnets, Bridges, and Gravity Wheel. The activities require only low-cost, readily available materials and can be easily adapted for your classroom’s needs.
