Real-World Modeling of the Engineering Process

Video-Based Learning Module

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • How does the engineer model using the engineering design process to solve a problem?
  • What do you notice about youth when interacting with the engineers regarding their designs?
  • How does an experience like this give youth a realistic picture of what engineers do?

Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

  • Although you might not have access to real engineers, what other ways could you introduce youth to real-world applications of the engineering design process?
  • What practices in the engineering design process are modeled in this video?
