I am a computer science high school teacher and I teach 9-12 grade students. I wanted to see what kind of helpful STEM activities others use to incorporate general science into my course. I have created some that include the scientific process, for example, for planning and creating a computer program.
I would look at the crosscutting concepts & the science & engineering
practices. What fits best is making models of situations. There are
several performance expectations that say something like "make a basic
computer simulation of ___". (Sorry, I'm on my phone so I can't provide
links.) You could also challenge them to reverse engineer a complicated
model, like weather forecasts. Chat with the science teachers in your
building about what's hard for them to incorporate & see if you can work
Have you considered creating a project into a science/engineering fair submission? There are great opportunities in this realm once you are done.
