Students can explore both the many paths to innovation and fundamental science processes through Discovery Engineering in Physical Science: Case Studies for Grades 6“12. This new NSTA Press resource will also show them that gecko feet inspired scientists to develop a stickier adhesive and cockleburs in dog fur led to Velcro.

The books case studies provide lively ways to integrate engineering and experimentation through 22 easy-to-use investigations. The investigations have titles such as By the Teeth of Your Skin: Shark Skin and Bacteria and From Ship to Staircase: The History of the Slinky. Each starts with an actual discovery that students explore through primary documents or historical accounts. Students are tasked with investigating physical materials, doing research, examining data, and creating models. Then they use their own personal ideas to design new products or problem-solving applications.

Teachers can implement the investigations in part or as a whole. They can also use them to teach one or more science concepts while exposing students to the unpredictable nature of science. Discovery Engineering in Physical Science is adaptable to classrooms as well as informal education settings such as STEM camps, science centers, and more.
