Innovation History

Using Mystic Seaport's Collections to Develop Technology Tools

About this Lesson

Students in computer science are expected to carryout explorations, create computational artifacts and write about their artifacts.  To facilitate the activities, students need a broad background in the analysis of artifacts, including how to undertake research/explorations.   In this lesson, students examine some artifacts from Mystic Seaport, tell a story about the artifacts, write 3-5 questions about the artifact and use the questions to create a computational artifact in the form of a mobile app quiz, using App Inventor.
