EDGE Design Thinking

In her 5th-grade science class, Kim Bullard began a recent project by introducing herself as a client—not the teacher—seeking a solution from a company—her students. Faced with the task of developing an experiment to effectively model Newton’s Second Law, students began to explore ways to demonstrate how the acceleration of an object is dependent upon both the net force applied and the mass.

After brainstorming solutions, Bullard’s students raced around the classroom for supplies to build prototypes. With only a small amount of guidance and a checklist, the students successfully designed experiments and created videos promoting their solutions. “At no point were students focused on learning just for a grade. They were working hard to understand why we should believe Newton. They truly wanted to understand and know. The boys collaborated with peers to design experiments. They had an opportunity to present their company’s product to the class and to give feedback to their peers.”
