Students explore heat transfer as they engineer chemical cold packs and insulation for a container that keeps medicine cool.
Students investigate balanced and unbalanced forces with a focus on friction as they engineer an affordable, eco-friendly slipper with a safe amount of traction.
Students prepare for the future of drone deliveries by engineering a cushioned landing pad that absorbs kinetic energy during a collision with a dropped item.
Students use what they learn about the reflection of light as they engineer devices that extend users’ vision behind them.
Please notify me when new units become available.
Two CT Modules accompany each engineering unit. Students deepen and extend their understanding of the engineering topic by using computational thinking, tools, and practices to solve problems.
YES Elementary and YES Middle School units integrate with science ideas and standards. We carefully design engineering challenges so students develop and use science knowledge as they generate solutions.
YES works closely with teachers to develop a suite of resources for each unit. These include:
