Now computer-aided manufacturing tools help engineers not only design but actually produce automobiles or aeroplanes. In addition, software allows electrical engineers to design and produce integrated circuits. There are also specialist applications for the design of houses, office buildings and theatre sets. Furthermore, related programs allow designers to test their chip designs for thermal properties, determine whether their building plans meet local code restrictions, test the logic of integrated circuits and examine manufactured goods for longevity, wear points, etc.

Experiments or to simulate an experiment that would be dangerous or difficult to perform using real-world materials. For example, researchers have developed powerful ways for students to study emergent phenomena, such as traffic jams, by modelling the behaviour of individual objects using StarLOGO (Colella et al. 2001). Learners typically manipulate objects in their simulations to see how they react under different conditions. To ensure that these experiences contribute to knowledge integration, designers need to encourage students to synthesize their results.

In the Kids as Global Scientists programme (Songer 1996), as part of a weather unit, students from different parts of the country or the world might make weather measurements and then compare notes on weather patterns in their respective locations. These curriculum units can require a commitment of anywhere from a few days to a few weeks or to the full semester. These programmes work best when several classrooms use the curriculum at the same time and share their findings with each other. They draw on communication technologies to coordinate activity and discussion among the school sites.
