How many of the 20th century's greatest engineering achievements will you use today? A car? Computer? Telephone? Explore our list of the top 20 achievements and learn how engineering shaped a century and changed the world.
There is a dual focus in this unit, inquiry and problem solving. Students should be encouraged to investigate which materials conduct electricity, and compare a variety of circuit pathways. From this, they should be able to design solutions to electrical problems by completing various circuit pathways.
Students will be able to…. • know the difference between a closed circuit and an open circuit. • construct simple to more complicated series and parallel circuits • explain the difference between a series and parallel circuit. • use symbols to draw the different circuits they created.
