19st century - Tuskegee “Movable School “ in Alabama George Washington Carver (1861-1943), quite arguably, the father of African-American Science. The Movable School reached “the hard to reach” and served the needs of “the people left behind.” (Mayberry, 1991) Courtesy of National Archives and Records Administration How did PocketSchool come about?

A curriculum filled with design challenges in STEM topics

Students in small groups visit 5 different task stations in which they must solve real-world problems and challenges

Task 1: Earthquakes The real-world problem: Many places on earth, especially the State of California, experience Earthquakes from time to Time. Our buildings must be designed and built to respond to the seismic movements effectively. The activity: Students are to build structures with gummy bares that can withstand seismic activity simulated on a shake table.   STEM Curriculum: “ Plate tectonics accounts for important features of Earth’s surface and major geologic events.” (Grade 6 , CA Standard) In collaboration with Quake-Catcher Network ( http://qcn.stanford.edu/ ) from Earth Science department

Task 2: Solar Energy The real-world problem: Electricity outages in developing nations are common. More over, the world is seeking renewable energy sources in order to slow the effects of global warming. The activity: Determine the ideal angle of orientation for a solar panel on a home or building generate the most electricity. STEM Curriculum: “ Many phenomena on Earth’s surface are affected by the transfer of energy through radiation and convection currents. … Students know solar energy reaches Earth through radiation, mostly in the form of visible light” (Grade 6, CA Standard) “ Energy enters the Earth system primarily as solar radiation and eventually escapes as heat.” (Grade 9-12, CA Standard)

Electricity outages in developing nations are common.

More over, the world is seeking renewable energy

sources in order to slow the effects of global warming.

Task 3: Wind Turbines The real-world problem: Electricity outages in developing nations are common. More over, the world is seeking renewable energy sources in order to slow the effects of global warming.   The activity : Determine how much energy can be generated by a kite on a tether being carried by natural wind energy. How high will the kite need to fly to capture the most energy?   STEM Curriculum: “ Students know different natural energy and material resources, including air, soil, rocks, minerals, petroleum, fresh water, wildlife, and forests, and know how to classify them as renewable or nonrenewable.” (Grade 6, CA Standard)
