In my approach, I do not expect the students to memorize theoretical concepts. Instead, comprehension and applied understanding comes through actually engaging with an idea firsthand without necessarily being able to define it. In this way, learning becomes a fun process of discovery, not one of abstract understanding.
All of the project by WYE_Lance are designed to be inexpensive and easy to implement into a classroom. The materials are streamlined, so almost every project shares components with at least 2 others. Each project has been tried and tested in an after school enrichment setting.
As Aristotle once said, "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them."
