Circuits + Site-Specific Weather Installation
STEAM Lesson
Grade 4

The 4th-grade Weather Energy project builds on students' previous experiences with the Engineering Design Process to solve complicated design problems. Each student must [ASK] themselves what individual design problems they will face while creating an artwork that imitates weather. However, one challenge that all students will face is developing and incorporating a working circuit into the art installation design model.
