The Billion Oyster Project: Program evaluation and design iteration (2 of 2)

Unit 2: Citizen science, Student design
Lesson 10 of 13

Objective: Students will be able to: 1) iterate on current design solutions that aim to rehabilitate oyster populations; 2) explain the importance of oysters to healthy urban ecosystems; and 3) evaluate environmental stewardship prototypes using an engineering-design thinking mindset.

Big Idea: Scientific research helps us to evaluate the impact of prototype solutions to environmental problems. How might our participation in the Billion Oyster Project help us better understand the relationship between science and engineering design?
