Thanks to generous investments from industry, state, and local partners, we are proud to offer you and your students a live interactive program through video conferencing software such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams!
We will guide your students through a hands-on design and construction activity with specific build requirements from us, acting as their customer. Usually this will be a house with specific customer requirements, but we may adjust the design/build activity. After completion, we will ask them to show us their final product and discuss their design choices. Your students will learn how to follow customer requirements in this live program, and in turn, build design and problem-solving skills.
Length: 80 Minutes
Students per Session: Up to 100 (split between 4 classrooms)
Note: Please put students in groups of 2-3 prior to the start of their session.
We will begin by introducing the program and explaining to your students what they will experience. We will have trivia breaks throughout our program. Finally, we will explain the design/build activity and how to use the supplies.
Note: Keep all supplies at the front of the classroom to start. We will ask students to go get them as part of our session.
To finish off each session, our team will discuss technical college education programs available to your students in their nearby area.
Computer Connected to a Projector and Screen
Webcam / Microphone Connected to a Computer / Tablet
This webcam should be connected to the computer with the projector, but a separate computer or tablet may be used as long as we can see a wide view of the whole class and students can walk up to the camera to interact.
Zoom or Microsoft Teams Software access
Stable wired or wireless Internet Connection
Please have at least one teacher in each classroom to help us moderate the session and ensure proper behavior is maintained. Each teacher will be responsible for:
- Keeping behavior under control for their assigned classroom
- Keeping supplies until we tell teams to go get them
- Be ready to work with students in their class so that trivia questions can be answered for the whole class
- Be comfortable operating the webcam and microphone setup prior to the livestream in their assigned classroom
