Measuring Distance with Sound Waves - Activity - Summary Students learn about sound waves and use them to measure distances between objects.

Measuring Distance with Sound Waves - Activity -

They explore how engineers incorporate ultrasound waves into medical sonogram devices and ocean sonar equipment. Students learn about properties, sources and applications of three types of sound waves, known as the infra-, audible- and ultra-sound frequency ranges. They use ultrasound waves to measure distances and understand how ultrasonic sensors are engineered. Engineering Connection Sounds are everywhere in our daily lives. Educational Standards Each TeachEngineering lesson or activity is correlated to one or more K-12 science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) educational standards.

All 100,000+ K-12 STEM standards covered in TeachEngineering are collected, maintained and packaged by the Achievement Standards Network (ASN), a project of D2L ( Next Generation Science Standards: Science Common Core State Standards: Math New York: Math New York: Science Materials List.

FREE Science Lesson Plan – Plant Growth

Develop pupils’ understanding of how a plant tracks the sun’s movement across the sky. Evaluate the light levels in the room, then program a robot to react to different light levels and replicate the movements of a plant throughout the day. Measure the amount of light absorbed at different times and control the speed of the turn to track the light efficiently. More ideas? Do you have any examples of using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education to teach Science topics? Next week, look out for our activity on Speed. Previous activity cards: Behaviour, Environmental Pests, Farming, Friction One, Friction Two, Hazardous Environments, Learned Responses, Materials.

Free Lego NXT MindStorms NXT-G Robotics Challenges Tutorials

Juanita Airey, activities using Lego's NXT 1 MindStorms Robots have been developed for use in School-based 2-hour sessions. Some, but not all, will work with the new NXT 2 kit (click here for more information). The tutorials are presented as a series of Challenges, which are gradually being converted for Web use. Challenges with an "M" after the challenge number include mentor notes. Challenge numbers greater than 100 use components that are not in the NXT 1.0 Retail or Educational Lego kits, but are available for separate purchase.
