Science Technology Engineering & Math
A. Engineering Design Process
ASK: What is the problem? How have others worked on this? What are your limits?
IMAGINE: What are some solutions? Brainstorm!. Choose the best idea.
PLAN: Draw a diagram. List materials. Develop a Procedure.
CREATE: Follow your plan and create something. Test it out! Make a model!
IMPROVE: What works? What doesn’t? What could work better? Change your design to make it better. Fix it! Test it out!
B. EDP = flexible.
1. There may be many models made- maybe one model/engineer
2. Students work through all 5 steps
3. In real life, engineers often work on just 1 or 2 steps, then pass their work to another team.
