For my AHS Capstone project, I was invited to teach in a seventh grade classroom at the Fuller Middle School in Framingham, MA. I taught seven class sessions, dividing them into four parts to do a crash-course in various types of engineering. Two classes were spent teaching computer programming concepts using Scratch, two classes involved learning about circuits through MaKey MaKeys, one class was spent on a design exercise to encourage creativity and designing for real people, and two classes involved an active build where each student built their own custom standing desk converter using cardboard. The lesson plans and teaching materials used for this project are included in this document.
