Teachers: Have Your Students Engage in Engineering Practices through New “Drone Science Mission Board Game”
Teachers (upper elementary through high school): Have your students engage in engineering practices through the new “Drone Science Mission Board Game,” developed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Center for Science Education, a GLOBE partner.
Throughout the game (no drone needed), students simulate the use of a drone aircraft to monitor a nearby volcano for signs of an impending eruption. Students engage in engineering practices as they choose the optimal suite of cameras, batteries, and sensors for their aircraft, then iteratively adjust and improve their choices over a series of simulated flights in order to maximize science data return.
