As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:
Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.
Watch as staff engage youth in an engineering design challenge to build their own roller coaster. Notice how staff connect the challenge to youth’s feelings and experiences with roller coasters.
Watch as Gauri works with youth to design, build and test a cook stove. Take note of how she encourages students to re-test or re-design their stove idea.
