The Tsunami Model Eliciting Activity (MEA)
This activity is designed for middle school or high school teachers who are interested in introducing a real world, open ended problem that introduces engineering concepts. The curriculum presented here has been implemented quite successfully in a middle school in 6th and 8th grades. Each link below will open a .pdf document.
Teachers are welcome to use this curriculum as is or modify it to fit their needs. We ask that, if you are using - or considering using - the Tsunami MEA, please contact the developers and let us know.
