This project is just in time for Winter Break! Motivate your students to use the engineering design process AND help Santa by creating a Santa Radar. The use of the radar is up to you! Maybe it detects everyone on the good list or tracks winter storms?
Teach your students the engineering design process using a piece of construction paper, tape, chenille tips, a golf ball, and a copy of the engineering design process template!
This project has been created to use on 11x17 paper.
Includes a link to an Animoto video which briefly introduces the project to the students.
The teacher may want to add a yardstick or ruler for measurement of the towers and a camera or other photo taking device for students to document their designs.
