Description

Class Experience

The main engineering learning outcomes of the Hot Wheel Engineering Club are 
1) creative problem solving through engaging, exploring, explaining, elaborating and evaluating
2) persisting even when encountering an unexpected and difficult challenge (Growth Mindset)
3) recognizing opportunities for improving the design even after you think you're "done" 
4) using creativity and imagination to generate and extend a design beyond an initial idea
5) implement Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Standards for Mathematics & Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts 
As a mom, I have played with Hot Wheels throughout my kid's elementary years.  As a teacher, I have taught this unit of study to fourth grade students. I have taught this class online for several years.

Teacher observation
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners may need help building track if this is difficult for them. Learners should have supplies close by so that when a topic is chosen, they may gather the supplies they need easily.
