Objective & Learning Goals

The students will develop the skills of collaboration, cooperation, and problem-solving while learning more about a way to generate electricity and the energy conversions required to produce electricity.


This project is aligned with Next Generation Science Standard MS-ESS2-1: “Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process,” as well as NGSS standards in engineering design (MS-ETS1-1 – MS-ETS1-3). It could be modified to address other standards related to energy transfer, such as MS-LS2-3. This project is also aligned with Common Core ELA anchor standards that focus on informative writing (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.2), research (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.7-8), and speaking and listening (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.SL.4-6).
