Built in partnership with the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI), STEMscopes DIVE-in Engineering guides students through engaging engineering curriculum built around flexible, hands-on lessons developed to transform your classroom into an authentic makerspace.
Gift your students with practical, inquiry-based educational experiences that encourage exploration and inspire ingenuity while leveraging the DIVE method.
Working the way engineers do, students begin by taking apart a working prototype. By recording measurements, making diagrams, and taking notes, the students prepare for the next step.
Now students are ready to reverse engineer the prototype, making their own version based on what they learned during the deconstruct phase.
In the next step, students analyze what they have created and brainstorm ways to make it different. Can they make it bigger? Smaller? Can they replace or remove parts?
The knowledge and skills gained by the students in the previous steps have prepared them for the final exploration, in which they solve the original problem in a new way, or apply their solution to a totally new problem.
In each grade band, students will explore nine different engineering solutions, in three different units: On the Move, Around the House, and Eyes, Ears & Hands.
