Your curiosity will drive your journey to discover more about the world around you with guided checkpoints along the way. You will have an opportunity to explore 'the high adventure' of learning when it is defined under your own terms and driven by your questions of investigation.
The Design Process
Defining The Design Process
Student Learning Objectives and Outcomes
1a. Students will be able to define The Design Process
1b. Students will perform an activity that demonstrates The Design Process
1c. Students will perform an investigation and blog/journal their results to communicate their findings
2a. Students will be able to explain the difference between the Design Process and The Scientific Method
2b. Students will be able to write a statement that will lead towards their own personal scientific investigation or design process
2c. SWBT identify a problem and evaluate solutions
2d. SWBT identify criteria and constraints.
DEVELOPING THE DESIGN PROCESS
1. ) Engineering Design Challenge (EDP) Example: Provide an example to build a foundation for student thinking
Students will carry out the procedures and experimentation (Building a tower out of index cards to hold
an object) - Identify Problem, Criteria/Constraints, Possible Solutions
2.) Students will discuss and share results then brainstorm possible in-depth questions that could further the investigation given additional time and
