Balsa Towers 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 Standard Network (ASN), a project of JES & Co. (www.jesandco.org). In the ASN, standards are hierarchically structured: first by source; e.g., by state; within source by type; e.g., science or mathematics; within type by subtype, then by grade, etc. Click on the standard groupings to explore this hierarchy as it applies to this document.

Synapse for Kinect SYNAPSE for Kinect Update: There’s some newer Kinect hardware out there, “Kinect for Windows”. This hardware is slightly different, and doesn’t work with Synapse. Be careful when purchasing, Synapse only supports “Kinect for Xbox”. Update to the update: There appears to also be newer “Kinect for Xbox” hardware out there. American Field Guide The American Field Guide site has been retired from pbs.org and is no longer available Produced in 2001 by Oregon Public Broadcasting, American Field Guide was an early experiment in online video for PBS. A unique local-national partnership, AFG presented a curated collection of over 1400 outdoors and recreation videos, produced by nearly 30 local stations around the country. Many of the programs and videos featured on AFG are still available through local station websites.
STEM electrical circuits assessment task CIRCUIT - a closed path that electric current flows through from a power source. Electrons always move in one direction from the power source back to ground, the point where electrons leave or enter back into the circuit. CONDUCTIVE - a property of a material that allows current to flow through it easily INSULATED - a property of material that does not allow current to flow at all. This is the opposite of conductive. Learning Activities ( 7 Articles ) Welcome to The GreenHouse Project - a place-based project in Northeastern North Carolina that connects schools and community in a sustainable growing program. Join us on our journey as we engage partners to align project goals with high school curriculum objectives and contribute to the local community through service learning work. ( 1 Article ) These activities came from a teacher-training workshops - Physics From the Junk Drawer - that has been offered by The Science House for several years.
