Students will love you for providing them with a hands-on experience when learning about the engineering design process at the beginning of the school year.

In this unit, the students will learn all about the engineering design process including each of the different steps that engineers take to design a new product or solution.

Distance Learning - Includes new Station Lab version 2.0

  • The station labs now include files for your remote learning environments such as Google Classroom, MS Teams, Schoology, and Canvas.
  • NEW! - Version 2.0 allows students to respond directly in the document (PPT that can be uploaded to any LMS)
  • Version 2.0 station labs allow students to manipulate all of the stations without the need for any supplies.
  • Version 1 allows students to use an online answer sheet (using Google Forms) for every Station Lab.
  • Distance learning directions PPT and video tutorial
  • PDF of each on-level Station Lab without the answer key (can be sent to students)
  • PDF of each modified-reading Station Lab without the answer key (can be sent to students)
  • PDF of each Student Answer Sheet, rotated vertically, for those who cannot access Google Forms
  • The FREE Kesler Science Station Lab Start-Up Guide is available to help you learn more about how to use this lab safety activity in the classroom.

The paper and digital versions of the station labs will vary some. You are given many options to meet the needs of your students whether they are in the class or working remotely.

What’s Included

There are 8 total stations for the station lab (plus 2 signs for break stations if needed). Each station includes all of the signage, literature, resources, and task cards for the students to complete them independently or with a group. The lab may also require materials that you likely already have in your lab for the Explore It! station.

Explore It! – This station will be a hands-on demo or manipulative that allows the student to connect the information through the application of building a new product.

Illustrate It! – This station allows the student to sketch or draw out the concept that they are learning. This allows for better recall and retention of new information.

Read It! – At this station, students will find a short passage relevant to the content and have to answer 3-4 multiple choice questions about the reading. There are two reading passages: an on-level version and a modified version.

Watch It! – Students will watch a short video at this station and answer questions relevant to their learning. This station can be set up with class computers/tablets, SMART board, or even a teachers computer.

Organize It! – The students will use a hands-on manipulative to diagram the engineering design process.

Write It! – At this station the students will be responding to 2-4 short answer prompts that will allow them to communicate their knowledge in complete sentences.

Research It! – This station will be a website that students will go to learn more information about the topic. Students will perform tasks and answer questions on their lab sheet. This station can be setup with class computers/tablets, SMART board, or even a teachers computer. If no computers are available you can double up one of the other stations and replace this module. Easy.

Assess It! – The students will demonstrate their knowledge of the engineering design process using a series of task cards with more formal questions.
