PLTW | Launch (K-5) PILOT Modules

K.1 Structure and Function (Aligned to kindergarten grade standards)

Description: Students will discover the design process and how engineers influence their lives. The students will use the design process to sketch, build, test, and reflect on a new paintbrush design. Then, in small groups, the students will design, build, and test a structure out of available materials to withstand a force.

K.2 Structure and Function: Pushes and Pulls (Aligned to kindergarten grade standards)

Description: Students will investigate forces by exploring the effects of different pushes and pulls on the motion of an object, including forces of differing strengths and directions. The students will refine a design to successfully meet the stated design challenge and reflect on the effect of modifying the strength or direction of a force.
