ETS1.C: Optimizing the design solution

Ask- What is the problem?

Can we communicate without using our voices?
How can we communicate with no sound?
What materials will you need to communicate?
Will you use technology?

Imagine - What are the constraints and criteria? What are many ideas that could solve this problem?

Constraints and criteria
Students can not use their voices.
Students must be able to communicate back and forth at least four times.
No technology

Trial and error
Multiple forms

Gather Information: What has been done to solve the problem? What science concepts are in effect here?

Students will have to make a chart of ideas they have brainstormed about other ways they can communicate with the distance. Students will write down the materials they will need to communicate. Students have to use communication outside of technology.

A great science concept to use is discovery. The students will not be able to use technology which will enhance their imagination and discover other forms of communication.
