$1,095.00 (USD)

Description

STEM PBL Units enable students to make STEM connections locally and regionally by completing STEM projects and corresponding STEM PBL Activators. The framework of our STEM PBL Units includes a meaningful STEM challenge, authentic inquiry, student choice, applied development, and public engagement. Additionally, all STEM PBL Units contain 3-D printing connections, career connections, and alignment to the national career clusters.

In the Wind Energy STEM PBL Unit, students are challenged to complete any of the three Activators chosen by them or the teacher. PBL Activators available include Wind Flow, where students research wind patterns to determine a location for their community or school; Wind Chargers, where students design a method to use wind energy to charge cell phones; and Wind Art, where students design a site-specific art installation that is powered by wind generators for their community.

The unit comes with materials and equipment needed for a class of 24 students, a teacher’s guide containing activity details and instructions, and a guide with three STEM PBL Activators containing starter ideas, cross-curricular connections, a concept map, and career cluster alignment. A Getting Started with STEM PBL e-learning course comes with the purchase of a unit.
