Students will utilize the engineering design process while designing a parking lot for a school. They will collaborate to sketch and then transfer their design onto a large piece of tagboard. They will use toy cars to test their designs and then go back and make any changes.
I used this lesson during my interview for my current position and I got the job...I bet it would work for you too!
Hope you enjoy! I will upload the "design brief" file that goes with this lesson for your convenience. I will make that resource free.
