Description

Columbia Engineering Outreach Programs aim to provide greater accessibility to academic and professional opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, especially for traditionally underrepresented local stakeholders. Through community engagement, we enhance the quality and reach of learning at all levels.

Our updated Inside Engineering program now brings Columbia Engineering lab content straight to you! These now are featured in the format of hands-on, engaging engineering design activities and lessons that you can do right in your own homes or classrooms.

The Engineering Speaks program now accommodates remote sessions that allow K-12 students to hear directly from engineers from Columbia University, through virtual panels, workshops, and seminars.

Virtual Field Trip

Inside Engineering - Applied Physics: Roller Coaster Movement

A fully-loaded hands-on engineering activity, with lesson plan and ancillary materials provided. In this activity, students use what they know about Laws of Physics to try transporting a golf ball (or similar sized rollable object) from one side of the table to the other without touching it or pushing it across the table.

Lesson: Forces, Motion, and Momentum
Engineering Area: Applied Physics, Grades 6-8
Activity: Roller Coaster Movement

Tied to NGSS and CCSSM standards, students can jump in to Applied Physics and Engineering with this design challenge to practice their problem-solving skills! Click on the resource links to the right to download the full lesson plan and lesson presentations.

By registering for this Learning Experience, you'll get an exclusive link to share your students' work, photos of the projects, and an opportunity to connect your students with real engineers from Columbia Engineering to talk about research related to this activity and lesson. You will receive more details on how to get more involved through details provided through registration.
