Product Description
Not sure how to get your students interested in engineering, problem solving, or team building? Or do you students need a "refresher" on these skill sets?

Then let them choose to accept the challenge brought to you by Mr. Newton himself throughout the "Out of this World!" Engineering Design Challenge! This lesson, complete with plans, documents, and writing prompts, will serve as a tool for introducing and building students' problem solving, team building, inquiry, and communication skills. It is based on an imaginary President, Mr. Newton, seeking students to design him a space needle for his company, Out of this World, Inc. To hook students, a letter detailing requirements, and a multimedia introduction is also included.

Now the question is, do your students accept the challenge?

Note: Slides use Google Images, and may be changed according to teacher preference. Make sure to download the introductory video to hook your students, too!
