Welcome students and briefly revise the purpose and scope of the Nano House research assignment and presentation.
Investigation – Teacher introduces the activity YouTube Clip – Living Tomorrow: House of the future. Discuss the implications for Nano paint and it’s impact on current house surface coatings Resources
Discussion – Encourage students to have a quick chat about one feature they are thinking about incorporating into their “Nano-house”. Q - What is the design feature? Q - How will it improve or assist living in the house?
Collaboration – Students move into break out groups of 3 or 4 students to work on the research and design of their Nano-house presentations.
Teachers to drop in and out of the break out groups to ensure students are on task and progressing with their research in to Nano-house design. Answer questions as needed.
Reflection – Q - What parts of the Nano-house project are you enjoying the most? Q - What parts are causing you the most problems?
Students to continue researching their major assignment on Nano-house design. Students to view YouTube Clip – Korea Designs Nano-Research City (1.58miins) and resources on NVSES website in shared Google Docs. Resources
