|Name of Activity||Electromagnetism Superheros|
|Keywords||electricity, magnetism, final, project, non-lego|
|Time||2 Hours Total|
|Brief Description||Students will have two weeks to design and build something to help a superhero rescue all of the paper clips in the city of Boston from an evil supervillain hiding in a cave.|
|Lesson Objectives:||-Incorporate both electricity and magnetism in a final project.
-Encourage students to design while thinking about a client and what he/she will need to accomplish.
Encourage students to be creative and reaffirm that there is no one correct answer.
|Materials Needed:||For the first week, some materials should be replied. You may then allow students to request certain materials (within reason) if they feel it would help their design for the next and final week.
First Week Materials:
|Preparation and Set Up:||-Collect supplies.
-Prepare a model of the supervillain in its cave (can be accomplished by a bunch of paperclips within a dark box)
-May consider bringing large pieces of paper in for students to draw their designs.
-Divide students into groups of 2-3.
|Necessary Background||Students should now have an excellent background on both electricity and magnetism. They should realize that a combination of electricity and magnetism will be needed to successfully complete this activity.|
|Umbrella Unit/Curriculum (if applicable)||Electricity & Magnetism|
