Engineering Design Challenges
Engineering Design Challenges Join the fun of introducing monthly engineering design challenges to your science curriculum. Students love to design and create useful inventions that solve meaningful problems. We will use literature as a springboard to some fun, hands-on adventures. Join us to participate in a hands-on workshop centered on children’s literature and solving a real world problem. Educators leave with a packet of 10 challenges that they can implement in their classrooms.
