Program Details

Format

1. Introduction to the scientific method.
2. Create a question for the glider. "What can I change (variables!) to make the glider fly a greater distance?
3. Discuss researching about what others have done concerning a similar question!
4. Decide on one variable to change.
5. Form an Hypothesis!
6. Create a procedure!
7. Experiment!
8. Analyse the results.
9. Wrap up with a conclusion.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

Next Generation Science Standards
K-2-ETS1-1.
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be
solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

K-2-ETS1-3. Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.

3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to
predict future motion.

3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and
constraints on materials, time, or cost.

4-PS3-4. Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
