Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 3
This class is taught in English.
The main engineering learning outcomes 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
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.
