Science Video Timeline - Introduction

The Science Video Timeline gives you a video chronology of how two science teachers implemented the model parachute task. You can do side-by-side comparisons of the teaching styles and approaches of Bridget Sirrine of Alpharetta, GA (top row), and that of Earl Carlyon of Farmington, MA (bottom row).

The early stages of the activity can be found by clicking on Day 1-3. Students' work mid-way through the task can be seen in Day 4 with a Poster session describing the Design Rules-of-Thumb that the teams proposed. Finally Day 5 has the final chute drops, and Day 6 wrap-up reflections on this work.

Be sure to compare this to the Tech Ed Video Timeline for insights into other ways this same activity can be used.
