SC.HS.4.4.B: Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motion of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative positions of particles (objects).
SC.HS.4.4.C: Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
