Students' Ideas of a Blender and Perceptions of Scaffolding Activities 

written by Jacquelyn Haynicz and N. Sanjay Rebello

We have previously reported on students' progression through a series of hands-on activities designed to facilitate learning about how the blender works [1]. Here, we report on the ideas about the blender expressed by students after completing the sequence of activities and the students' perceptions of the activities themselves.
