| 1-PS4-2 |
Students can conduct investigations showing evidence of illumination from an external source such as the Sun. 1-PS4-3
Using Solar Rovers, students can plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light. 4-PS3-2
Using Solar Rovers, students can make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. 4-PS3-4
Using Solar Rovers, students can apply scientific ideas to design, test, and redefine a device that converts energy from one form to another. 3-5-ETS1-3
Students can use Solar Rovers to plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved DCI/PS4.B
| || MS-PS3-5 |
Using Solar Rovers, students can develop an investigation and model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance change, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system. MS-PS4-1
Students can conduct investigations showing evidence that the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave is related to solar energy gathered with the solar cells. MS-PS4-2
Students can use Solar Rovers to develop and use a model to describe how waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials. MS-ETS1-4
Students can use Solar Rovers to develop a model or experiment to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
| || HS-PS3-3 |
Students can use Solar Rovers to design, build, and redefine a devise that works with given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy. HS-PS3-4
Students can use Solar Rovers to design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy. HS-PS4-5
Students can use Solar Rovers to conduct investigations about technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture energy. HS-ETS1-2
Students can use Solar Rovers in an investigation to design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
