Description 

What is the result of your design process?
Present your final product and process to your peers, including information about each stage of the design process.
 
Common Core Standards Assessed: ELA.WHST.1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9

Time To Complete 

1-3 Hours

I Can Statements 

  • I can succinctly and accurately describe my engineering design process and present my design, model, or prototype.
  • I will know my sharing of solutions is of high quality when it:
    • Includes information about my design process
    • Includes information about my design, model, or prototype
    • Meets the requirements for the format of the presentation

Suggestions for Assessing Student Readiness to Move Forward:

  • Confer with students, asking them to point out specific examples of information about both the design process and their product in their presentation.

 

Possible Activities 
  1. Students develop posters that describe their product/system and their design process.

  2. Students create engineering design presentations for their peers or to be presented publicly

  3. Students host an “Engineering Fair” where they demonstrate their products and present their design process.
