Mars Bound

URL (Grade Level: 4-12)

Uploaded: June 14, 2011

Students will be introduced to the design process, engineering, and technology. Students will learn that the design process is not a simple linear progression from one step to the next resulting in a finished product. Although there are steps, the design process is an iterative one: designing, modifying, testing, and redesigning until a finished product is made. A central tenet of engineering, however, is that there is no such thing as a “perfect design.”
