2.1 小夜燈 Night Light

STEM lessons + blocks

SAM Labs

Product Description

Students will gain understanding of how a product has a purpose when it is designed and built.

  • Students will integrate and exhibit learning by designing a night light that changes color and creates a moving pattern.

在本課中,學生將了解光線如何使我們看清楚,以及物體在設計和製造時如何達到目的。

學生將通過設計改變顏色並創造移動模式的夜燈來整合和展示學習。

    The followings are provided with this lesson kit:   

    • 45/90 minutes Night Light - Teacher Lesson Plan with notes (script) on lesson PowerPoint
    • Night Light -  Teaching PowerPoint
