NJCCCS: Oh, really?


8.2.12.B.2
Design and create a prototype for solving a global problem, documenting how the proposed design features affect the feasibility of the prototype through the use of engineering, drawing, and other technical methods of illustration.


8.2.12.D.1
Reverse-engineer a product to assist in designing a more eco-friendly version,using an analysis of trends and data about renewable and sustainable materials to guide your work.


8.2.12.E.1
Develop a cure for cancer in an ecologically sound way and run a clinical trial using androids developed using recycled matrials in an economically sound model.


OK, I made the last one up--the other two are real.
You could look it up....

Are you trying to "race me to the top," buster?

Hey, wait... perhaps we should stop carrying on like this in public... people are watching, you know?

Ok, you're right... screw it.

Potential Standards:

Idea #1
Split an atom to gain power. Harness that power to fuel an economy to help maintain acquired power. Use said power to marginalize nations that seek to split atoms on their own. Rationalize this with words of democracy while planning pre-emptive strikes that will prevent losing the economic fuel to maintain the power.

Idea #2
Discover ways to use two of the most basic compounds, carbon and H20, relentlessly (for industry and agriculture) while writing about ecological awareness on computers fueled by carbon and cooled by polluted water.

As you can see, I'm a much better social studies teacher than science teacher.

Dear nashworld,

Sadly, I suppose, no--I am blessed with a lack of ambition.


Dear John,

Ah, the Mark Twain in you is shining--and you're a better science teacher than you know. As for #2, trees have been doing this for millions of years.

But they don't spend a whole lot of time on computers.
