Description

Grades 6–10. The invention of machines has had a profound impact on human history. Machines, both simple and complex, have been used for many purposes, from making our lives easier to waging war. Students encounter many kinds of machines each day, including some that use motors. In Working with Motors and Simple Machines, students learn about 3 simple machines (inclined plane, pulley, and lever) and how these machines reduce the effort force needed to do work. Students also explore motors and how they function. Students are challenged to combine their knowledge of motors and machines to design a system that lifts a heavy load.

STC–Secondary™ is a 16-unit, inquiry-centered middle school science curriculum developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC). Each STC–Secondary™ unit provides opportunities for students to experience scientific phenomena firsthand. A comprehensive, research-based curriculum, STC–Secondary™ is aligned with the National Science Education Standards.

The 5-Class Unit Kit comes with a Teacher's Edition, unit technology pack (digital access to the teacher edition and digital student access to the student guide), 16 reusable hardbound Student Guides (item #976103), and the materials needed for a teacher to teach up to 5 classes of 32 students per day.
