The College of Engineering at the University of Utah: Lesson Plans

It is never too early to introduce engineering concepts into educational settings, and with these great outreach materials from the University of Utah's Engineering Department, middle school educators can do just that. Each activity includes instructions (in PDF form) and a mixture of tutorial videos, PowerPoint slides, or handouts. Readers near Utah's campus may be able to take advantage of the "checkout materials" program, where educators can borrow resources needed to complete some of the activities (note that COVID-19 may affect availability). While some of the lesson plans are best suited for in-person classrooms due to the more complex materials lists and need for supervision (e.g., "Building Wings" requires cutting tools and carving wood), others may be adaptable to online learning environments. For example, the "Paper Boats" activity requires more common household objects: paper, tape, a timer, and a pseudo-swimming pool (a tub with water should suffice).
