How do I keep students engaged in a lab experiement when the group is made up of 6 students but there is only tasks for 3 students at a time. We only have 5 computers to use for simulations with a class of 32.
I am teaching a class on aircraft design and simulation using model airplanes and six lab stations and 5 computer simulator stations. The class is 32 so I have groups of about 5 or 6 students. How do I keep the other 3 engaged in the experiment while the 3 who are on the station are actually working. I don't want the 3 with nothing to do just copying the work of the 3 engaged students. I have asked for more computers, but that is not going to happen this year.
