The CAF Education Department is providing links and resources for parents, students and teachers to assist with home and online learning during this challenging time with COVID-19. We know you need immediate help, so we are putting together lists of great tools.
This list of resources and hands-on lessons will grow over the next days and weeks.
Please feel free to share resources and lessons with us to post to help our communities continue with student learning.
Our focus is to provide activities and resources that will help students learn by doing. Remember..."He who does the work does the learning."
Productive struggle is a good thing to promote the mindsets that helped the Allied Forces secure our freedom and liberty. Many of the lessons & activities we have chosen require simple engineering design processes including problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, designing, testing, and redesigning.
