How do you combine math, science, technology, engineering, history, art, all to meet education standards in your classroom? Biology teacher, Matthew Burns and physics teacher, Boris Gokhfeld from Waltham High School, MA, USA, created this project to share with you.
The Great Pyramid Challenge is a three or four class unit on the engineering design process that helps students achieve national goals in engineering and thinking skills. Students will learn about the engineering design process and practice the steps by building pyramids in teams using common household items.
Visit the Great Pyramid build phase with Waltham High School students through this video.
