When science and engineering are woven into a heartwarming story like Dolphin Tale, viewers see the engineering process unfold as a series of trials on a path to a specific goal--a replacement tail for Winter. Each new prosthetic tail (each iteration) is, hopefully, an improvement for the dolphin in terms of health and, in the sequel, acceptance by a younger dolphin. Talking with kids about the science and engineering in a movie like Dolphin Tale helps them better understand the engineering design process and its cycle of brainstorming, prototyping, and testing.
Thanks to Aerojet Rocketdyne and INFINITY Science Center, a group of elementary school teachers in Mississippi spent a day at the INFINITY Science Center for the first Hancock County Science Teacher Development Conference. As part of the event designed to give teachers concrete support for STEM education, teachers got an introduction to the Science Buddies website and did a paper airplane folding activity to reinforce the importance of hands-on science learning.
The GenCorp Foundation/Aerojet Rocketdyne is a proud sponsor of Science Buddies.
