    GRADE 9: A design and technology wood lesson where students investigated how a laser cutter operates and are introduced to manufactured boards. Activities included a mini-laser lesson, manufactured boards lecture, design folios, and lightbox projects. Formative assessments included the application of safety procedures and correct use of the laser cutter; attainment of knowledge about manufactured boards, and the comprehension of how MDF were used in their projects.

    GRADE 7-9: Through the “Making My Own Traffic Light” project, students design and develop a scaled electrical circuit to ease local traffic congestion problems. Students explore basic electrical principles and components as they design and prototype system improvements. A final report of their project and projected cost analysis will complete this design and problem-based learning experience.

    GRADE 2: Everyone in this project-based lesson is a designer. Students are told to waterproof a hat or cap so that when it rains in Ningbo, their hair doesn't get wet. To complete this challenge, students analyze the need, play games, and do experiments to learn about the properties of different materials, design a waterproof hat or cap, build and test a prototype, and then think about the process and share what they've learned. Students are introduced to the engineering design process and learn about how different materials work and what they can be used for.

    GRADE 4-6: The submitted science curriculum contains a module of sample lesson plans incorporating all eight STEL standards, practices, and contexts; teachers are encouraged and directed to use these lessons to develop and teach the more difficult science concepts. Sample lesson plans have been prepared on topics such as: “Properties of Soil” and “Characteristics of Water and Other Liquids” and other topics including “Rusting,” “Production of Sound,” and “Properties of Air.” Teachers are influenced to differentiate their instruction and implement a variety of learning activities, outcomes, and evaluations.

    GRADE 8: In this lesson, students learn how the concept of gradient and simple machines can be employed in building ramps that are effective and efficient. These ramps are required to allow users to climb with the least amount of energy while using the least amount of space. Students then fabricate their design solutions and perform linear function analysis regarding their slope/rise. This activity culminates with reflection and modifications.

    GRADE 7-8: Using a project-based approach, groups of four students will first learn and demonstrate the ability to apply the design process, and then use the design process to solve the problem they wrote in their textbooks, based on the scenario completed at the beginning of class. Each group should devise inventive and original methods for preparing and serving a nutritious breakfast at their school. Determine some strategies for breakfast provisioning. For example, porridge in a pouch.

    GRADE 7: This bridge context lesson plan illustrates how technology helps solve human problems using various bridge contests. The lesson uses the problem-based learning approach as a learning platform in which students have the opportunity to practice the real-world engineering design process. The outcomes of this lesson include truss bridge designs, arch bridge using mortar, and suspension bridge.

    GRADE 7: This lesson plan shows how a Korean technology teacher can implement manufacturing technology in the middle level technology classroom. The problem addressed this lesson is the isolated social context during the COVID pandemic. The lesson will guide students to design a device that connects individuals through an innovative and creative technology. This unit consists of eight sessions. The problem solving in this lesson includes exploration, design, making, and evaluation. The outcomes of this lesson are sketches, prototype, and an Arduino embedded communication device.

    GRADE:7: The unit teaches basic sewing skills and techniques whilst following the design process to develop a technological outcome for an authentic need. It builds on prior knowledge of basic hand sewing skills and techniques, the use of decorative stitching, understanding of the generic design process and knowledge of felt as a material. This lesson is at the beginning of the unit of work, where students explore ideas for needs and opportunities to be able to select their own stakeholder for the project. The “Plushie with a Purpose” unit is an introduction to Soft Materials, leading to a batch production unit of work “boomerang bags.”

    GRADE 7: This design activity introduces how students can apply creative thinking methods, drawing skills, principles of structure and mechanism, and develop their ability to integrate knowledge and skills through building a creative mechanical toy. The lesson plan consists of four modules: creation of design, mechanism and structure, design and problem-solving, and tools operation. The learning outcomes of this activity includes mechanism design, structural design, material uses, creativity, and design concept.
