From the Classroom: Best Tech Practice Video of the Week: Automaton Project

11/7/2012 12:00:00 AM
Physics teacher Scott Swaley of High Tech High developed a project using automatons - mechanical toys -- to teach principles such as torque, mechanical advantage and angular velocity to his 12th grade students, who designed and constructed the automatons.

The automaton project video was made for the McGraw-Hill STEMIE awards, for which Swaley received honorable mention. An HD version is available here, and more background on the project is available here.
