One Activity: Start to Finish
In The Design Process in Action section of the workshop, you watched DESIGN SQUAD's teenage contestants tackle ambitious projects with sophisticated equipment while you explored ways to make the design process stimulating and fun for your kids.
Now we'll focus on the design process in a more familiar setting: fifth-graders using inexpensive materials to complete an engineering activity in an hour-long session.
Watch a step-by-step slide show demonstration to learn how easy it is to integrate the design process into the hands-on activities you do with your kids.
