ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems

ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions

In this pathway, students explore the battery supply chain to define trade-offs between the benefits of lithium-ion batteries and the challenges they present (MS-ETS1-1). This pathway concludes with an opportunity for students to evaluate solutions to challenges that emerge along the battery supply chain (MS-ETS1-2).

The Science of Thermal Runaway

Engineering Solutions

From hoverboards to cell phones, portable electrical power makes life as we know it possible. But it can come with some dangerous possibilities. Let’s investigate, experiment and search for solutions.

The Science of Extraction to E-Waste

Trade-Offs & the Supply Chain

Safe and sustainable cities will depend on lithium-ion batteries to power our modern lives. But what are the costs?

The Science of Fire Forensics

Claims, Evidence and Reasoning

There’s been a fire. Your job is to figure out where the fire started, and how.
