STEM LESSONS OFFERED:
|Lesson||NC Standard Correlation|
|Lesson: The Science of Roller Skating|
This lesson focuses on each letter of S.T.E.M. and how they relate to roller skating. We discuss friction & students reverse engineer a roller skate by removing wheels.
|K.P.2.1 Classify objects by observable physical properties (size, shape, color, texture, weight)|
1.P.1 Understand how forces (pushes or pulls) affect the motion of an object
|Lesson: Motion & Skate Design|
This lesson focuses on force & motion and roller skating. Students will apply these concepts to the real world and get a first-hand look at how mass affects motion and the amount of force needed to move different sized objects.
|3.P.1 Understand motion and factors that affect motion (3.P.1.1, 3.P.1.2)|
|Lesson: Super Sound! Acoustics & Rink Design|
This lesson focuses on sound waves and vibrations. We will take a look at how sound/vibrations are related to skating and students will make a “sound sandwich” to get a real look at how vibrations cause sound.
|2.P.1 Understand the relationship between sound and vibrating objects|
|Lesson: Science of Lighting|
This lesson focuses on the light spectrum and color spectrum (ROY G BIV). We will relate these concepts to the skating rink and students will go on a visible light spectrum scavenger hunt in the rink.
|4.P.3 Recognize that energy takes various forms that may be grouped based on their interaction with matter (4.P.3.1, 4.P.3.2)|
|Lesson: Newton’s Laws of Motion|
This lesson focuses on Newton’s three laws of motion and how each law can be seen in the skating rink. Students will work together in groups to make a balloon powered car to witness Newton’s three laws in action.
|5.P.1 Understand force, motion and the relationship between them (5.P.1.1, 5.P.1.2)|
