Scope & Sequence


The following lessons were designed, written and piloted by teachers from the Monomoy Regional School District from the towns of Harwich and Chatham, in conjunction with a Science Advisory Board of Engineers at the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center (CMMC) and the MIT Club of Cape Cod.

The lessons, for students in Grades 1-8, address the academic goals set forth in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, copyrighted by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) 2012.

At the elementary level, the lessons serve as an introduction to the engineering design process through demonstrations and simple problem solving tasks, in conjunction with curriculum that addresses sound and light waves, electromagnetic radiation, and communication. An emphasis on the role of engineers in science and technology, and the role of Guglielmo Marconi in the development of wireless communication are also important. At the middle school level, students begin to undertake engineering design and development in projects constructed by teachers and engineers.

It is a goal of all of the educators and engineers involved in this project to embed engineering experiences that relate to the curriculum. Equally important is the development of meaningful assessments that measure student understanding of these difficult and abstract concepts, as well as student ability to imagine, develop, create, and evaluate projects as part of the engineering design process.
