M E 102S Toys for Technology Exploration: First-Year Seminar (1)

This is a First-Year Seminar that focuses on an important sub-group of toys. "Learning-by-doing" is a recognized method for improving student's learning in grades K-12 (and in college!). As part of "Toys for Technology Exploration", existing hands-on kits used for science and math education for ages 10-14 will be reviewed. The new standards for science and technology education in Pennsylvania are used to guide new hands-on kit designs, and these designs will be prototyped and field-tested with public school students.
