This month, Solve It is all about water quality. Each month's Solve It includes these resources:
A short video that teachers can share with their students to introduce the challenge
A teacher video that will provide some background and a demonstration of an activity that can be used to launch the challenge.
A template which describes the engineering design process and includes some guiding questions for each of the steps and additional resources.
And connections to the real world featuring one of our STEM Pro Live! episodes.
The goal is to provide the teachers and students an opportunity to collaboratively design solutions to problems that align to their curriculum with real world applications.
We would love for you to share what standards you are addressing and some of the solutions your students came up with by emailing us at STEMinfo@maricopa.gov or in the comment section below!
