This program begins with a driving question.
We will spotlight Garrett Morgan, a black inventor and businessman, who made a the streets safer for pedestrians and automobiles.
We will use tinkercad circuits to create and code a traffic light.
We will then add small modification to improve on Garrett Morgan's traffic light design.
We will return to the driving question.
Students will apply ideas to a design and test and refine it.
Students will model a traffic light
Student will use block coding to generate an algorithm for their traffic lights.
4-PS3-4 Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another
3-5-ETS1-2 Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
