STC-Secondary™: Working with Motors and Simple Machines Interactive Whiteboard Activity

(in stock)


Grades 6-10. Most, if not all, technological advances have both positive and negative outcomes. In this group of interactive whiteboard activities, students work in cooperative groups to discuss whether they think each technological advance has had a positive or negative impact on society. Students use the work formula (Work = Force/Distance) to solve mathematical problems and determine whether a variety of statements describe examples of work. Students also apply what they have learned about the power formula (Power = Work/Time) to solve mathematical equations. Access for 32 students per year for 60 months.

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 Next Generation Science Standards*.
