For this 3-part project, students will prepare for programming by practicing the problem-solving steps. They will select a problem that they are dealing with at home, at school, or a problem in the community. They will then research and gather data to help them find a step by step plan to solve the problem.
The students will explore, research, and become more knowledgeable in various careers in science. Students will apply this knowledge by creating a lab, hands-on activity, visual, or video. Opportunity for student choice is provided and creativity to apply their understanding is given.
