Week 1 - STEM: Take Flight
The laws of physics help us understand how global Christian organizations share physical resources, aid, and even the Good News with the world's most needy people. Through helicopter drops and more, the process of slowing descent to resist the force of gravity has often been used across diverse contexts and locations. In this exciting, hands-on project, students will be given a unique STEM challenge as they investigate Newton's laws of motion and energy.
Week 4 - Space: It's Out of this World
Galaxies, stars, moons, and space travel ... and mostly planets ... will be the focus of this series of lessons. And who doesn't like space?! This project utilizes the creativity and unique abilities of students--ones they already possess--to apply basic, fact-driven sciences associated with space and space exploration. With the recent leaps in space exploration and discovery, imaginations can be fueled by space fact and fiction, now more than ever! We'll supply the crayons (it won't be that hard!).
