Think Like an Engineer
In this STEAM lesson, students are immersed in a world of Transportation Design as they use the Design Thinking Process to create their own vehicle prototype out of everyday materials. Students will plan, create, analyze data, and adapt their designs to produce a balance of form and function in their vehicle. Through trial and error, students will begin to understand how an Engineer thinks through problem-solving and reflection.
