Tobin K-8 – STEM Field Trip 14 (’18-’19)

On Friday, February 15th, 50 5th grade students from the Tobin K-8 school visited Northeastern to learn about Engineering, Science, and Energy. Students started by learning about the Engineering Design Process and different types of engineers, then learned about energy: what it is, what the different types are (mechanical, thermal, kinetic, etc), what the sources are (coal, wind, etc), and how we get from the source to the lightbulb in our houses. Next – the students played with snap circuits and solar panels, and concluded the day by designing, building, and testing their own wind turbine blades.
