Your Challenge (45 minutes) > Print/View All Notes
Students learn more details about their challenge in this lesson and then watch two videos that illustrate components of the engineering design process they will use to tackle their challenge. After students have read the challenge and watched the introductory videos, have them turn to pages 8-16 of their Engineering Portfolios, and go over the steps in the engineering design process, making sure that students understand what each step means. Then ask them to use the information they have collected and brainstorm new ideas with their team to complete steps 1-4. Students should complete these pages as they go through each stage of the engineering design process.
