• Our students worked in a student-centered environment on the web-based engineering projects, “Windmill of Your Mind” and “Thar She Blows” from the "TeachEngineering" website. These projects introduced engineering using real world problem-based learning that interconnected STEM. In addition, our students collected data about renewable energy and the advantages and disadvantages of wind turbines using the web-based digital library developed by "TeachEngineering".


  • Students researched the feasibility of installing a wind-turbine for their school and wrote a proposal to the school principal based on their findings and recommendations. Students then built a model of their wind turbine using the engineering design process to accompany their proposal.

  • We used Edmodo to connect, collaborate and share content relating to the students' engineering projects.

  • Our Students learned about alternative assessments using blogging, virtual science notebooks, anecdotal recordings, and student created podcasts. Podcasts will be shared with Mrs. Green’s World, an internet radio network headquartered in Tucson, Arizona and posted to the project website.
