## Standards-Based LessonsCopy Direct Link

In the Hopper Race lesson, student pairs design multiple prototypes to find the most effective way to move a robot without using wheels. In this lesson, your students will:

• Define a problem with constraints and criteria

• Optimize their solutions through systematic testing

• Use and seek failure as a tool to improve their solutions

• Pose meaningful and answerable scientific questions

• Use data and evidence to support their conclusions

Standards Mapping

• Next Generation Science Standards
• MS-ETS1-1. Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
