Feedback form is now closed.
From resisting earthquakes with engineering to designing a faster propulsion system for submarines, this session will provide design challenge opportunities aligned with Science 10, Physics 20, and Physics 30 using inexpensive materials. Participants will be actively engaging with a number of design challenges from the Perimeter Institute's educational resources that highlight effective teaching practices. These design challenges provide opportunities for students to apply their understanding to authentic problems while promoting problem solving within challenging constraints.
