Teaching Physics & Design Thinking: A Sample Lesson from Our NGSS Instructor

June 4, 2020

Our NGSS Program Instructor, Greg Brown, has prepared a video lesson that teaches Physics and Design Thinking concepts with a simple and fun project, Making a Penny Spinner. This is appropriate for all ages, though we recommend it for elementary and middle school students.

Reach out to programs@krauseinnovationcenter.org if you’ve created a teaching video of your own that you’d like to share with the KCI educator community, and we’ll post it on our site.
