The Engineering Design Process

IMG_1425.JPGToday we discussed the basic principles of the engineering design process. Students were previously asked to draw a picture of what they thought of when they though of an engineer. It was interesting to see that almost everyone drew a man with a mustache and tools.

We had to discuss stereotypes and make sure that they all knew they could be engineers one day and that girls make just as good engineers as boys do!IMG_1422.JPG

They were then given a task and asked to complete an Individual Design for a robot. Once their Individual Design was completed, they then had to work together with their team mates to create one Team Design. They will be using their Team Designs tomorrow to create their robot Prototypes that will be tested on Thursday.
