In the first week students are introduced to engineers and the engineering design process. They then follow the engineering design process using the resource book in this product. The resource book guides the students through the process with the teacher acting as a mentor (Similar to Genius Hour).
The unit was designed for upper primary students. Check out the preview for a weekly breakdown.
