SCI-04.PS3.04 Using the engineering design process build a device that converts energy
from one form to another.
Clarification Statement: Examples of devices could include a greenhouse model such as a glass jar in direct sunlight, electric
circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar
heater (solar oven) that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints could include the materials,
cost, or time to design the device. Use engineering design process flow chart. Disciplinary Core Ideas Energy can also be transferred from place to
place by electric currents, which can be used to
produce motion, sound, heat, or light.
The success of a designed solution is determined
by considering the desired features of a solution
(criteria). Different proposals for solutions can
be compared on the basis of how well each one
meets the specified criteria for success or how
well each takes the constraints into account.
