First Grade Optical Engineers-Part 3
After learning about light and how it reacts with different materials, the 1st graders followed the Engineering Design Process to develop a lighting system. The goal was to shine a flashlight in a hole in one side of a box and have light come out a hole at the opposite corner. So after "Asking" questions, "Imagining" possible solutions to the problem, "Planning" what they are going to do by drawing a diagram and listing materials, the students "Created" their lighting system. Below are pictures of some of our first graders first attempt at creating a lighting system.
