16280 Design, Do, Fail- Bring Engineering Design to your Classroom
The heart of engineering is problem solving and even if your students do not go on to become engineers, problem solving skills are valuable throughout their life. Inspired by a book or text of your choice, join us as we break down the engineering design process, then guide you through building your own active learning, standards-aligned lesson. You don’t need robotics or special materials to bring engineering to your learners, just a mindset and some creativity! Open to K-12 educators in any classroom setting. Please bring your own book of choice to work with in this seminar.
