When I was teaching middle school science, one of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), included understanding the engineering and design process. I decided to create a bulletin board display that would serve as a reference for my students during one of our STEM lessons.
My students were designing, constructing, and testing a thermos to determine which structure could hold the most heat. Throughout this lesson, I referenced this bulletin board. Having a visual of the 5 steps of the engineering design process (Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve) that can be referred to, helped solidify the process for my students.
