Engage in Iteration

As you watch the video:

  • Think about a systematic engineering design process.  How does iteration fit into the process?
  • Notice how the activity is set up to so that youth must revise and improve their solutions.
  • Listen to how the facilitators encourage youth to explain their thinking as they revise their solution.

Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw.

  • What strategies would you like to use to encourage youth to test and revise their solutions?
  • How can you set up engineering activities so youth are able to improve their ideas?
  • How can you support critical thinking skills through engineering experiences?
