Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve, Present. These are the steps to the Engineering Process.
I'm so proud of my third graders and sixth graders this week. After many weeks of working diligently through the entire Engineering Process, they have completed their first Engineering project. They all designed, tested, re-tested, improved, and presented their zip line prototypes for Batman.
Yes, Mr. Wayne was able to take time out of his busy schedule of saving Gotham City to help choose the best zip line prototypes for his utility belt.
As Mr. Wayne and I watched the teams present, we asked ourselves, is this zip line safe? Is it smooth while traveling? Is it cost effecient? And, would I be willing to purchase it?
Hanging on my Batman Zip Line wall now, are 6 winning and runners up zip lines that Mr. Wayne has chosen to be the best.
Again, I'm so proud of what my students can do.
