Secret Agent Engineering – Curriculum ExchangeSecret Agent Engineering provides a context for students to apply understanding of wavebehavior and patterns while designing a code and device to transmit location information torescue their classmates from “disaster”. Elementary students engage in NGSS wave transferthinking while applying knowledge of light and/or sound waves. Designed codes and devices arepresented to promote and demonstrate understanding of science and engineering. Differentiationof requirements and materials facilitates scaffolding to meet varied population needs. Materialsused during two forty five minute classes range from flashlights, colored paddles, rubber bands,straws and shoe boxes. Teacher feedback supports continued implementation.
