Event description
During the Motorized Toy Car Challenge, students will develop new designs for electric gear driven toys.

About this Event

The Motorized Toy Car Challenge has been designed to supplement the curriculum of teachers and is intended for middle school students whose teachers are using a multidisciplinary approach. During this challenge, students are involved in writing proposals, drawing sketches, and working with models to develop a plan to meet a specific set of design requirements. Force and friction, simple machines, levers and gears, torque and design are the core scientific concepts covered in this challenge.

Like all AWIM challenges, the Motorized Toy Car Challenge will join together teachers, students, and industry volunteers in an exploration of physical science while addressing essential mathematic and scientific concepts and skills.

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
