### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Engineering Design Process - 6 STEM Design Challenges Bundle

6 STEM Challenges:
Students will learn to identify a problem with constraints and limitations, brainstorm solutions, develop a plan, implement the plan, and then evaluate on ways to improve their solution.

-STEM CHALLENGE #1: Design an Arch Challenge
-STEM CHALLENGE #2: Design a Prosthetic for a dog or elephant
-STEM CHALLENGE #3: Design a Kite Challenge
-STEM CHALLENGE #4: Sorting Device Challenge
-STEM CHALLENGE #5: Parachute Challenge
-STEM CHALLENGE #6: Design a Frisbee Challenge

*****************************************************************************
These design challenges will help expose your students to the Engineering Design Process in a hands-on and engaging manner. Students will learn about the steps and stages of the Engineering Design Process and will be able to identify and determine the aspects of each stage within a given problem. Students will learn to identify a problem with constraints and limitations, brainstorm solutions, develop a plan, implement the plan, and then evaluate on ways to improve their solution.

The steps of the Engineering Design Process are presented as following:
-Imagine
-Plan
-Create
-Modify

Each challenge includes:
-A student worksheet
-Options for a teacher to extend the challenge or connect it to a real world scenario.
-A math project to help reinforce the concept of diameter (use with the Frisbee Challenge)

*****************************************************************************
This unit is aligned with Common Core Math and Next Generation Science Standards. Beyond basic STEM Concepts and the Engineering Design Process, this unit teaches students about some of the basic components of building structures such as the utilization of self-reinforcing geometric shapes like triangles, rectangles and diameter.
