Saturday Physics Follow-up Workshop: Waves & Technology

  • Southridge High School (Room C204) 9625 Southwest 125th Avenue Beaverton, OR, 97008 United States (map)

Waves and Technology

This workshop introduces an NGSS-aligned learning progression through a cell phone and telecommunications project. The unit integrates project based learning, modeling, all four areas of  STEM, and the NGSS Waves performance expectations. We begin with the phenomenon of a cell phone call where the student asks on speakerphone “How are you hearing me?”. That launches us into telecommunications, including an exploration of how the ear works and coding a simple “App” to digitize a text message, transmit it, and transform it back to a text message.

Target Audience: Classroom High School Teachers
Course Fee: Free
