Using the THINK app (free for iPad and 10" Android tablets), students will explore how progress is shaped through a common and systematic approach that follows a fivestep process of Seeing, Mapping, Understanding, Believing and Acting (SMUBA). Your students will explore the process of innovation and participate in as many as three units, featuring handson lessons that will to help them become innovators in their own right and to take actions that can help them become forwardthinking citizens of the world.

In this lesson, students investigate where their electricity comes from and consider the tradeoffs between different sources of energy. They then design, test, and evaluate wind turbines that can be used to generate electricity to answer the driving question: How can we design a wind turbine that effectively converts one form of energy into another form of energy?

In this lesson, students will use information about the connection between changes in biodiversity and changes in water quality to articulate criteria and constraints for a water filter design. They will answer the driving question:
What factors are considered when designing a water filter in response to a change in biodiversity that affects ecosystem services?

In this lesson, students will use the criteria and constraints they articulated in You Are What You Drink Part 1 to build and evaluate a water filter. They will answer the driving question:
Based on a set of criteria and constraints, how do we build and evaluate a water filter that will lead to an optimized system that meets the needs of clean water for human use and consumption?
