Dream Big Special Features

This series of special features may be used to provide enrichment to Dream Big and include behind-the-scenes videos and educational webisodes on engineering topics.

Dream Big

This film highlights the many ways in which engineers tackle problems big and small and explores how the principles of engineering can create a better future for all. Three female engineers are specifically profiled: one who specializes in creating structures that can better sustain earthquakes, ...

Testing and Evaluating: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of testing and evaluating.

Testing involves trying something and observing what happens.Evaluation is about using critical thinking and judgment to determine if a set of criteria are met. If no...

Abstraction: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of abstraction.

Abstraction reduces how hard a problem or task is by focusing on what's important. We do that by deciding what the important information is and then removing all the unnecessary details....

PROFESSIONAL Video
 

Decomposition: Grades 4-6

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of decomposition - the breaking down of a problem into smaller parts to make the problem easier to solve. Students will also begin to explore the computational concepts of sequences and loops.

Things in Motion. Slides

This short video is a collection of slides that support the video, "Things in Motion."

Things in Motion

In this video, students will learn about force and the effects of force on objects. Through the use of examples, students will develop an understanding of force, friction, work, gravity, mass and acceleration.

Human Body Systems

In this video, human body systems are examined. Using computer and graphic animation, the structure and function of the lungs, the heart and the skeleton are explored. Photos of a sheep's organs and human skeleton help foster understanding of how the lungs exchange gas, how the heart pumps and ho...

Everyday Simple Machines. Slides

This video is a collection of 24 slides that support the video, Everyday Simple Machines (N704).

Everyday Simple Machines

This video examines simple machines. Six types of simple machines are explored. Examples demonstrate how simple machines make our lives easier: inclined planes, wedges, screws, wheels and axles and pulleys.

The Changing Phases of Matter. Slides

This video is a collection of 21 slides that support the video, The Changing Phases of Matter (N633).

The Changing Phases of Matter

In this video, students will examine how a substance, such as water, exists in different phases. The examples provided in the video illustrate how phase changes occur. Student will learn about states of matter, particles, solid, liquid, gas, plasma, melting, freezing, vaporization, boiling, evapo...
