Electricity and Electrical Engineering

Unit Overview

(From EiE.org)

How do electrical circuits work?

The lessons in this unit will get students thinking like electrical engineers, starting with the storybook A Reminder for Emily, about a girl living in the Australian outback who needs an alarm to remind her when it’s time for chores around the ranch.

 

The hands-on activities in this unit reinforce science concepts including conductors and insulators, schematic diagrams, and circuits. For the final engineering design challenge, students plan, create, and improve their own alarm circuit.

Integrating Science & Engineering with Other Subject Areas

Our science and engineering classes are centered on comprehensive unit studies that support lessons in English Language Arts, Social Studies, World Geography, and Mathematics.

Literacy: Each unit comes with a storybook that includes resources that allow the integration of literacy, including comprehension questions and vocabulary handouts, and ideas for how students can practice their writing skills.

Social Studies: Every storybook is set in a different country around the world; the child protagonists in the storybooks come from varied backgrounds and/or have different abilities. So, as the storybooks set the scene for the engineering design challenge, they also make connections to geography and culture, with supporting resources like glossaries and maps.

Mathematics: As students collect data and work through their engineering design challenge, they use math skills and concepts.
