As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:
Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw.
Providing real-world application of the skills of an engineer is an important strategy when developing a STEM identity in youth. Watch and listen for the challenges youth are given to think deeper and try to solve problems using redesign.
What happens when youth challenge a group of engineers to complete the STEM activity they did in their program? Listen as the engineers go through the same problem solving steps and align real-world engineering strategies to the challenge they have in building and designing vehicles.
