Orr, John A.


As part of the Partnerships Implementing Engineering Education program funded by the National Science Foundation, the authors wrote, tested, implemented, and archived engineering lesson plans for the Worcester Public School system's fifth grade classes. These lessons were designed to be incorporated into the existing science curricula and include pulleys, sound waves, magnetism, and space probes. Several fifth grade classrooms within Worcester were visited throughout the year for observations. These observations assisted the creation of content-appropriate lessons.
