The Mountain Office Presents: Exploring Life Science Using the Engineering Design Cycle

Grade Level(s): 3-12

Date(s): January 7-10, 2019

Location: North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, Cullowhee, NC

Cost: Free (if selected)

Description: It’s easy to see how engineering applies to robots, but how does it apply to the life sciences? Use the engineering design cycle to study ecology, molecular biology, genetics, and other life sciences. Build aquatic traps, design solutions to civil rights issues, model cell processes, and get messy all while integrating literacy strategies! Investigate how to adapt these concepts for your classroom use. Geared toward the middle grades, the concepts can easily be scaled up or down to fit your classroom needs.
