Workshop

There’s a heat wave, and the cooling fans of Lawrence Elementary School aren’t working very well. Is there a better way to make them run to keep the school comfortable? Through exploration and investigations with circuits, students design a solution to wire the building more effectively to transfer energy from its source to fans throughout the school.

Topics:
Disciplinary Core Ideas: PS3.A: Definitions of Energy; PS3.B Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer
