Reflection: Real World Applications Designing a Nuclear Waste Facility Part 4 - Section 2: Creating the Model


My strategy is incorporating technology. I have access to an architecture program called AutoDesk Revit. Revit is a 3D modeling program used by architects all over the world. I like to use it because it is an easy program for the students to pick up. In addition, I am teaching students how to use an authentic technological tool. 

In my lesson called Understanding Revit, I review the basic steps to using the program.

Designing a Nuclear Waste Facility Part 4

Unit 8: Designing for the Future: Nuclear Waste Facility
Lesson 4 of 5

Objective: SWBAT draw a model of their nuclear waste facility and defend their design.

Big Idea: Creating the model is great fun but how can you know it can pass the mustard with a client? Students are given a real life situation and must explain why their design is the best design solution.
