Do we have an idea yet? (IDEATE)

Unit 1: "Unit 0": Engineering design thinking
Lesson 4 of 12

Objective: Students will be able to: 1) engage in a brainstorm session to collaboratively ideate solutions; 2) identify constraints that limit the ideation process; and 3) choose an idea to build out as a prototype solution that fits constraints.

Big Idea: Ideation, identification of constraints, and convergent thinking are processes that link understanding a problem to implementing a solution. How might students develop collaborative skills for ideating solutions and developing impactful prototypes?
