About this Event

The Skimmer Challenge has been designed to supplement the curriculum of an elementary (4-6) science or math teacher. Friction, forces, the effect of surface area and design are some of the physical phenomena students encounter in this challenge.

Like all AWIM challenges, the Skimmer Challenge will join 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
