Teaching students to use the basic engineering design process gives them tools to become independent problem solvers! Use this bright visual as a poster and/or handout for your young engineers. Great to use with STEM challenges! There will be more STEM resources to come.
Saving Freddie Students will learn that an engineer solves problems with given constraints and criteria for success. Using the engineering design process, students will work in teams to save Freddie the Gummy Worm. The lesson includes a writing assignment to provide step-by-step instructions to share with other engineers. Grades 6 - 8 Standards - MS-ETS1-1, MS-ETS1-2, MS-ETS1-3, MS-ETS1-4, WHST.6-8.2
A fun Christmas STEM Challenge for the winter holidays! Students will design a zip line vehicle to save an elf from a high shelf. This hands-on activity is an engaging design challenge that allows students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect math topics to real-world applications.
The Engineering Process: Crash Course Kids #12.2 by thecrashcourse: So, how do we go about being engineers? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks to us about the Engineering Process and why we should do things in order, as well as many of the questions we should ask along the way.
