5th Grade Energy Design Challenge

Kerah Sandler, Fifth Grade Teacher

The year is 2220, and all the energy we use needs to be renewable for the health of our Earth. Your task is to create a 3D model or a 2D blueprint of an invention that would be powered by renewable energy to help people in daily life.  Your invention could be a reimagining of an idea that already exists or a brand new idea. You can work with a 5A partner or individually on this project. 

Teacher Reflection

This project empowered students to apply the knowledge they had gained about energy transfer during our unit to an invention that could benefit the planet.
