This challenge requires students to use their understanding of slow changes to the Earth’s surface while making real-world connections to the challenges that engineers face when building on Earth’s surface. In the challenge students apply their knowledge of erosion prevention and create a working model that will prevent their “yards” from being eroded away by a downpour of precipitation! In this lesson students not only work through the Engineering Design Process (Brainstorm, Plan, Build, Improve) but create a materials list and cost analysis for their design! Sit back and observe your students become fully engaged in this fun and extensive Engineering Design Challenge.
