Science &
Engineering
Practices
Welcome!
• Things to do…
• Sign-in
• Find a table
• Silence your electronic devices
Introduce Yourself and Select
an
M&M
• RED: What are three things you like to do when you are not at work?
• ORANGE: If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you
go and why?
• YELLOW: If you won 10 million dollars, what is the first thing you
would do with it?
• GREEN: What is a recent accomplishment (professionally or
personally) of which you are proud?
• BLUE: If you could have dinner with anyone, anywhere, with whom
would it be and where?
• BROWN: If you had a complete free day, how would you spend it?

work of
scientists and
engineers
compare?

You need to get across the
river!
• Criteria:
• Must be able to get across the river without additional forces
added
• Constraints:
• Limited materials
• 2 index cards, 2 plastic cups, duct tape, 3 washers, 2 wooden
skewers, 4 straws, 5 rubber bands, 2 paper clips, 2 sheets of waxed
paper.
• Limited time (30 minutes)
• May only be powered by a rubber band
• Record your design and think about when and how you use
science, math, and technology.
Time to test and share!

Is there anything you wish to add or
revise about the work of scientists and
engineers?
THE STEM DESIGN PROCESS
Thinking about what you have
experienced this morning with
the engineering design
process, what actions are you
considering for your own
instructional practice?

Connecting to Science & Engineering
Practices
Goal: I understand how science and engineering
practices relate to each other as humans learn about
natural phenomena and solve problems.
Learning Target:
I am familiar with the science and
engineering practices in the K-12 Framework for
Science Education
Connecting to Science & Engineering
Practices
1. Read the article: Scientific and Engineering Practices in K-12
Classrooms by Rodger Bybee.
2. Jot down some notes about parts of the article that resonate
with you.
3. Grab a partner
4. Share your thoughts about the article as it relates to the
activity and your classroom.
Connecting Science & Engineering Practices
to WA K-12 Science Standards
Process: Card Sort
1. Find a partner in your grade span.
2. Listen for information about the WA Science Item Spec
cards.
3. Match the Inquiry and Application Cards to the “Practices”.
Connecting Science & Engineering
Practices to WA K-12 Science Standards
Reflection: In your Notebooks….
1. Describe the relationship between WA Inquiry & Application
standards and the Science & Engineering “Practices”.
2. What claim could be made about our Application standards?
What is the evidence?
3. What do you think this means for our instructional
materials?
Where are the Engineering Practices in
your Science Unit?
Look for opportunities in your unit for kids to
experience the engineering design process:
• Already present.
• Could be added (can be done with existing
materials)
• Use alignment data from ESD 105’s Science

Engineering Design and the
“Application” of Science
Physical Science

Earth & Space
Science 10%
Life Science 10%
Systems, 20
Application, 20
Inquiry, 30
70% is
Systems,
Inquiry, and
Application
What are the three types of
“Application” questions on the
th
5 grade MSP?
• Record your response on a notecard
• Do not put your name on the notecard
• Fold your notecard in half
• Stand up
• Trade the card you have 3 times
What are the three types of
“Application” questions on the
5th grade MSP?
• Plan and Test
• Redesign
• Careers
Select a unit…
• Stand next to a kit unit that you teach (if it is
taken by more than 3 people, choose one above
or below your grade level).
• Take your guide back to your seat.
• Using any of the templates, create an
engineering design challenge.
• Use poster paper to prepare to share.
