Activity DescriptionConnects physics concepts to human desirability, technical feasibility, and financial viability of a solution
- Students understand relevance of physics to applications
- Students are aware of elements that makes a technical venture a success
- Students encounter the human-centered design approach
1 class period - 60 minutes
Students who are taking 1st year physics (not necessarily majors)
Suggested context for implementation
A stand-alone, problem-based activity that can be included in a 1st year physics course in connection with work-energy.
