Abstract: This study looks at a complete instructional unit on electricity and magnetism for a 7th-grade engineering classroom. This unit, the Solenoid Invention Kit, incorporates project-based learning and digital fabrication to address challenging concepts in electricity and magnetism. Students are given pre- and post-test and the results are analyzed. Results indicate students improve their conceptual understanding of electricity and magnetism.
