The Electricity STEMkey Module 8 consists of three activities. Each activity starts with a day-to-day context and follows an inquiry-based learning approach. In the first activity, a fictitious example was selected, focusing on the real-world problem “Reverse Engineering”. The second activity has a context associated with lightning rods and the third activity is related to the human body.
Students are engaged in a number of science and engineering practices: asking questions and defining problems, developing models, constructing explanations and designing solutions, using different sources of information and software (e.g., Arduino), collecting and processing information/data, obtaining and communicating information.
In the module, different topics are provided to respond to gender-neutral learning, and suggestions for interdiscplinary pathways are given.
