Why teach the Engineering Design Process?

Engineering is EVERYWHERE! Almost everything we eat, wear, ride, or use has been touched by an engineer who designed, created, or modified it in some way. Think about it! Just look around and see if you can find something that has not been affected in some way by an engineer.

Engineering is CREATIVE. I have been teaching creative problem solving since I first began teaching gifted in 1978. To me, engineering is creative problem solving at its finest. What better way is there to combine creativity with math and science and make it applicable to the real world?

Engineering teaches students to THINK CRITICALLY. The engineering process requires students to use the highest levels of thinking as they Analyze, Create, and Evaluate their designs.

Engineering requires students to WORK IN GROUPS. Gone are the days of working independently. Our kiddos have to learn to work collaboratively.

Engineering teaches PERSISTENCE. Failure is inherent in the engineering design process. Students learn to examine designs that do not work and modify them so they can solve the problem. This may require them to modify their designs and revise them several times.

Engineering is FUN and ENGAGING! In studying about the brain and learning, we know that students remember best information that is fun and engaging. Students love design engineering challenges while learning important science and math concepts at the same time!
