Event description
The Energy Module provides firsthand experiences in physical science dealing with the anchor phenomenon of energy.

About this Event

The Energy Module consists of five investigations that focus on the concepts that energy is present whenever there is motion, electric current, sound, light, or heat, and that energy can transfer from one place to other. The guiding question for the module is how does energy transfer between systems?

Students investigate electricity and magnetism as related effects and engage in engineering design while learning useful applications of electromagnetism in everyday life. Students conduct controlled experiments by incrementally changing variables to determine how to make an electromagnet stronger. They investigate how the amount of energy transfer changes when balls of different masses hit a stationary object. Students explore energy transfer through waves (repeating patterns of motion) that results in sound and motion. They gather information about how energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and how that affects the environment. They explore alternative sources of energy that use renewal resources.

During this course, participants will:

Engage in three-dimensional learning for developing disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and cross cutting concepts

Participate as an adult learner to experience investigations and science and engineering content

Share teaching strategies to support literacy and inquiry-based learning

Identify the learning goals in the module and how the investigations support the Big Ideas

Examine assessment opportunities

Develop notebook as a resource
