The Engineering Design Process (45 minutes) > Print/View All Notes
Before beginning this activity, divide your class into STEM teams of 3-4 students each. Students will need to work in STEM teams for the remainder of the lesson. (See Appendix C for more information on forming STEM teams.) Have students turn to page 7 of their Engineering Portfolios before the activity begins. After students watch the introductory videos, go over the steps in the engineering design process and make sure that students understand what each step means. Ask them to use the information they have collected and brainstorm new ideas with their team to complete questions 1-4.
