EiE Video Snippets: Engineering Design Process

EDP Step: PLAN

During this step, students review all of the solutions that have been generated and select a single idea. The group then further develops this idea.

WATCH CLASSROOM EXAMPLES

Arguing from evidence is an important engineering skill. Watch this team consider the results of their classroom tests when making a decision.

Team members bring lots of different ideas to the table, but in the end, everyone has to agree on a design.

Student engineers think creatively, communicate clearly, and collaborate with peers.

Predicting, testing, observing, and comparing: elementary engineering is closely connected to inquiry-based science.

When team members share ideas, the group is more likely to come up with a good design for a hand pollinator.

To choose a site for a bridge, apply what you know about rivers, streambanks, the qualities of soil . . . and people!

An energetic teaching strategy gets groups to justify their material choices.

Young engineers explain the steps of the EiE Engineering Design Process.
