Transcript of Engineering Design Process
Steps 2-3: Solution Design
Research and Brainstorm
How can you solve the problem?
Think about solutions to your problem and come up with as many ideas as possible.
1. Write down all ideas.
2. Be creative.
3. Work as a team and respect every idea.
4. Look at the materials and sketch your ideas on paper.
5. Research background information.
Step 3: Design a Solution
Choose the best solution and plan how to build it.
Think about which ideas best address the problem, and which are possible given the amount of time and materials provided.
Sketch your top idea(s) on paper before you build.
1. What goals are you trying to achieve?
2. How might this idea look on paper?
3. Do you have enough time to build your design?
4. Do you have the materials that can work with this design?
Cooperation during the lab is very important.
In order to have a successful learning experience, you will be given one of the following group roles:
Engineering Design Process
Objective: I can identify the steps of the Engineering Design Process.
STEP 7: Share
How will you share your solution with others?
Display your work or discuss your design with others.
1. What do you think the best feature of your design was?
2. What steps of the design process helped you the most?
3. What did you learn from watching other kids?
4. What are some things everyone's designs have in common?
5. If you had more time, how could you improve your design?
Watch the video and think about the steps of the design process.
See if you can identify each step.
STEP 4: Build a Prototype (Implementation)
Once you have agreed on a solution, it is time to construct a prototype.
The Engineering Design Process:
STEP 6: Modify or Redesign
Define the challenges of your experiment clearly before getting started.
What is the goal of the activity?
Can you imagine how someone could use what you're going to design? How would it help them?
Are there any special requirements for the activity? For example, are you only allowed to use certain types of materials?
How will you know if you've been successful?
STEP 5: Test & Evaluate
Test out your design. (Real world or with models or simulations)
Think about what works and what could work better.
1. Does your design meet the goal of the challenge?
2.How do you know it solves the problem?
3. Have the risks been minimized?
4. How can the design be improved?
Determine what did not work with your design and make improvements.
Once you have done this, you should redesign, test, and evaluate again.
Provide encouragement and support your group members.
Make sure other team members are doing their jobs correctly.
Help other group members as needed.
Organize materials for the group.
Make sure other members are using materials correctly.
Request additional materials if needed.
Record information on the lab sheet for your group.
Share ideas used be the group and explain the solution used to solve the challenge.
Answer any questions from other classmates about the challenge.
Make sure the group is building safely at all times.
Decide which ideas to use during the challenge.
Determine when group is successful in the challenge.
Make sure team is testing for success in the challenge correctly.
Does the design meet the goal(s) of the challenge?
