HS-PS3-3 Evidence Statement

Physical Science: Energy - Evidence Statement 3

HS-PS3-3: Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.*

[Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on both qualitative and quantitative evaluations of devices. Examples of devices could include Rube Goldberg devices, wind turbines, solar cells, solar ovens, and generators. Examples of constraints could include use of renewable energy forms and efficiency.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment for quantitative evaluations is limited to total output for a given input. Assessment is limited to devices constructed with materials provided to students.]


For more specific information, including ways this performance expectation can achieve three-dimensional learning, please see this NGSS Evidence Statement.
