STEM Teachers, here’s another cool lesson opportunity via TED-Education and the lesson begins by asking students, “What’s the superpower you most want?”
Students respond and can then check out the series “If superpowers were real,” pictured above (from TED-Ed website), which explores the science of invisibility, flight, immortality, super strength, super speed, and body mass (TED Blog). Lessons are attached to each picture on the TED-Ed website and the lessons engage learners to “Watch,” “Think,” “Dig Deeper,” and “Discuss” (example here). Here’s the video associated with the invisibility lesson:
