Event description
Students will explore different ways of sending a message and organize them by how the message is sent (light or sound) and by distance

About this Event

In the module, How Can We Send a Message Using Sound?, students collect evidence through hands-on activities and text to build a claim that sound is caused by something vibrating. They build a model of a kazoo and use this to demonstrate that sound also causes vibration. They use a model of an eardrum to collect more evidence that sounds causes vibration. They use a test to construct an explanation for how we hear. In the end-of-module design challenge, students apply what they have learned about sound and engineering to make a simple musical instrument that can send a message a short distance.

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
