The paper generator book project sits at the heart of STEAM and ELA.  It's a project that will show students how energy is made, stored and transferred - all through a book.  Lessons might include: energy production, conductivity, everyday interaction with objects, developing a story/plot and how that story will be enhanced through new interactions, etc. 

How does this idea help to spark student curiosity?

At the intersection of ELA and STEAM, the paper generator book project can inspire students to further image the possibilities for interactive creations using both art and science.

What grade level is this idea most appropriate for?

  • Middle School (5-8)
