Workshops
Investigating a Cliff Model
Presenter: Hethyr Tregerman (LAB-AIDS)
Overview: When is the last time you engineered a coastal breakwater? Here's your chance! Engineer a coastal breakwater (from the Issues and Earth Science "Erosion and Deposition" unit from LAB-AIDS) and analyze the trade-offs of the design. Explore how the natural world is influenced by our engineered world, which in turn creates more societal issues that must be solved through science and engineering practices. Activities exemplify Next Generation Science Standards and show how SEPUP embeds the engineering practices and uses real issues to powerfully deliver content learning. Middle School Earth Science
Reclaiming the Metal
Presenter: Hethyr Tregerman (LAB-AIDS)
Overview: In this activity from the SEPUP middle level physical science program, participants role play a scenario involving pre-treatment of copper containing liquid wastes from computer circuit board manufacture. They examine trade-offs of metal replacement and chemical precipitation, techniques actually used in industrial applications, and in so doing, come to understand the science behind complex environmental issues. Middle School Physical Science
Chemical Batteries
Presenter: Hethyr Tregerman (LAB-AIDS)
Overview: Although we live a battery-powered lifestyle, most of us (middle school and high school students included) have no idea how batteries actually work. In this hands-on workshop, participants will be engaged in an activity from Issues and Physical Science from LAB-AIDS. Make a wet cell battery, explore the effect of using different metal electrodes on battery output, and consider ways to reduce the number of discarded batteries in the waste stream. Middle School Physical Science
Interpreting Motion Graphs
Presenter: Hethyr Tregerman (LAB-AIDS)
Overview: In this activity from the SEPUP middle level physical science series which explores Newton's Laws in a context of motor vehicle safety, participants are challenged to design an investigation to measure the speed of a moving cart as a function of its release point from a curved ramp. They carry out their experiment, discuss the role of speed in automobile collisions, and conclude by examining distance v. motion graphs. Middle School Physical Science
