Class Experience

Students will learn what engineering is and what engineers do. Students will develop a simple drawing from which they can make a physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem. 
Materials you will need include: a piece of paper, a pencil, a piece of aluminum foil (approximately 12 x 12 inches), a plastic straw cut in to four equal pieces, tape, a large container or sink with water in it, something to add as weight (dry beans, pebbles, small coins, or dry rice).
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
