Learn how engineers learn from failure to revise and improve the designs. This requires perseverance and improving through multiple iterations.
Failure is an important part of engineering and plays a critical role in solving problems.
Watch as staff encourage youth to investigate how they designed their package, what did or didn’t work with their design, and how they might adapt for re-testing. Staff support youth’s abilities and encourage youth to work with their team and develop their own solutions for re-testing their designs.
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.
