  1. In this engineering design activity, students are introduced to the engineering design cycle. They then complete the design cycle to complete a quick engineering challenge to see who can build the tallest tower using only index cards. This activity is number 1 of 5 in a mini engineering unit. It i
  2. In this engineering design activity, students will create a boat design out of aluminum foil to try to hold the most pennies without sinking. After testing their first design, students will observe features of the best boat designs from the class to re-design and re-test. This activity is number 2
  3. In this engineering design activity, students read about historic structures and then are given the task to build a structure that holds as much weight as possible. Students have limited materials, time, and structure size. This project will take 1 – 2 class periods. This activity is number 3 of 5
  4. In this engineering design activity, students will learn about how engineers create safety equipment for sports. They will then complete an engineering design challenge to create a landing pad that will keep an egg from cracking when dropped from 2 meters. This project should take 2 – 3 days. This
  5. In this project, students will learn about the engineering design cycle. They will learn about how astronauts must have specially designed food packages to use in space. They will go through the engineering design process to design, build, and refine a package that will allow astronauts to eat M&amp

Overview and Extra Worksheets
Bundle Description
Save $$$ and get four extra worksheets when you buy the bundle!

All resources in the bundle are aligned to the NGSS Engineering Design Standards (3-5-ETS1 and MS-ETS1). You can use these resources as a mini engineering unit, as an introduction before students participate in an Engineering Fair, or resources can each be used as a standalone activities throughout the school year.

There are 5 full engineering design activities that take 1 to 3 days each, and also 4 additional worksheets that can be used as homework or extra practice. The activities are numbered 1 to 5, and start from most simple tasks and progress to most complex. The “Introduction to Engineering” lesson includes a very simple engineering activity, and the last lesson “M&M’s in Space” is much more complex project!

Each engineering activity includes Teacher Guides, Student Worksheets, and Answer Keys. Most materials needed for activities are household products and basic science lab materials.

Each of these products can also be found individually at The Nerdy Scientist: NGSS-Aligned Resources store.
