Up your students’ knowledge and skills with Engineering Camp in a Box. Filled to the brim with fun, easy-to-use resources, this box has everything students need to engage, create, and investigate. 

Emergency Solar Water Heater Design Challenge Overview
With this fun-filled box, students design, construct, and test a solar water heater that people can store in their homes and then use after a natural disaster or another emergency. The solar water heater must use light from the Sun to increase the temperature of 1 liter of water to over 38 degrees C (100 degrees F) in under 30 minutes.

Who It’s For:
Middle schoolers (6th – 8th grade students) will find substantial value in this design challenge, equipped with all the necessary materials. Using the Argument-Driven Inquiry instructional model, students will explore natural hazards, energy and matter, and ratio and reasoning.

Standards Alignment
Toss aside the textbooks and give students an opportunity to test their science, mathematics, and engineering knowledge firsthand. They’ll build skills necessary to meet the Next Generation Science Standards, a Framework for K-12 Science Education, the Common Core - Mathematics, the K-12 Engineering Framework, and state standards for science.
