In this unit, your students will apply their engineering design skills to each step of the design process by defining a problem and success criteria, making different prototypes, establishing systematic testing procedures, analyzing data to improve their solutions, and describing why their solution is the best.
Define a problem by observing a scenario.
Design multiple prototypes to find the most effective way to move a robot without using wheels.
Test the efficiency of two different grabber designs and determine the best design based on specific test criteria.
Figure out why something isn't working and fix it
