Engineering for Students

Posted August 11th, 2014 by Cameron Mastin

Scientists and teachers are trying to find ways to make engineering design easier for students to understand.  Some students have a difficult time understanding how engineering is different than science.  They also struggle making engineering design more than tinkering.  The Boston Museum of Science has developed a simple design process that makes engineering understandable to students.  It consists of five steps that help students know what to do at each stage of the cycle:  ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve.  We will discuss the design process at the teacher workshop and hope that it will engineering activities easier to manage and understand.
