Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how to identify a problem and create a solution.  Students will learn the five steps of the engineering design process: 
1. Ask: What is the problem or question?
2. Imagine: What are some solutions?
3. Plan: Draw a couple of different diagrams
4. Create: Choose a plan and create something 
5. Test: Did it solve your problem or question?
6. Improve: Make updates and changes 
7. Share: Share your work 
I have been teaching and guiding students through the Engineering and Design process for many years. I am always intrigued to watch as students plan and create to solve problems. 
Students may decide to continue building and adding on to their engineering projects after class. 
Class Materials: Provided by teacher: Activity sheets - needs to be printed for class Provided by student: paper and pencil, materials for engineering project-For example: scissors, glue, tape, string, yarn, Popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, paper, clay, cardboard, etc. I suggest finding recyclable or reusable materials that you already have for the projects. * Some projects may ask for specific materials but most will be student's choice.
During the class, I will observe each student's thoughts and ideas during discussions to see if they demonstrate understanding of problem and solution. I will also be observing their understanding of the engineering design process. I will be looking to see how they followed the steps and incorporated them into their project.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
If your learner chooses, they may need/use scissors during the creating/building time.
