UTeach Outreach applies inquiry-based strategies to help the students in the discovery process.

Lesson 1: “Today we discussed the topics of plate tectonics and collaborated with one another to visualize how stabilization, material strength, and trusses are essential in building bridges. The lab was about constructing a bridge that used toothpicks, marshmallows, and design to assist in the development of a student-built bridge. The students used the materials to ensure the most stable bridge was built within 20 minutes. At the end, the students were asked why their bridge could function versus why others broke down during a shaker-table process. Overall, it was great.”
