This unit will develop your students' engineering design skills as they investigate ways of defining problems, brainstorming solutions, and testing and refining prototypes. They'll refine their problem-solving skills as they create a solution to a problem that has constraints, and improve on others’ ideas. All while honing their ability to identify failure points and success criteria when comparing, modifying, and evaluating a solution.
Your students will improve their communication skills as they engage in a range of collaborative discussions about their solutions.
