Physical Science
  • Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. PS2-2 

Earth & Space Science
  • Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth’s systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity. ESS2-4 
  • Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions. ESS2-5 
  • Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates. ESS2-6 
  • Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how the uneven distributions of Earth’s mineral, energy, and groundwater resources are the result of past and current geoscience processes. ESS3-1 

  • Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions. ETS1-1 
  • Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. ETS1-2 
  • Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success. ETS1-3 
  • Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved. ETS1-4
