Reflection: Student Ownership With Great Power...(Part 2) - Section 2: Design


This lesson is appropriate because it capitalizes on the strong desire that students at this age have to make a difference in their world, especially as it relates to ecological issues.  This lesson also helps to make the connection between the small scale engineering projects we have been working on in the classroom to applying the engineering design process to solve pressing, real-world issues.  In addition to engineering, this lesson also addresses several ELA objectives and provides an opportunity for writing across the curriculum.

It would be most appropriate to use this lesson following multiple hands-on engineering design projects.
