What educators are saying

This has been so useful as an Engineering introduction for my students! They are really enjoying learning about this--especially seeing how many career possibilities there are.
This was a great resource for our Engineering Design Process unit! It helped the students understand the process at different levels.


This kit includes several activities that can be used to introduce or review the Engineering Design Process.

Activities Include:
Engineering Sort Activity

“Before-During-After” Note Taking Sheet
(record what is already known, what is learned and what questions remain)
Engineering Spotlight
