Earth & Space Science
  • Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment. ESS3-3 
  • Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources  impact Earth’s systems. ESS3-4 

  • 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
