Feedback form is now closed.
Experience a unit of instruction in which students take on the role of a food engineer and design a health bar for rescue workers and the victims of a natural disaster. In response to a "formal" RFP, students will utilize a digital simulation and the iterative design process to meet all criteria in the RFP, and submit a successful proposal.

Learning Outcome #1
Participants will be able to understand how engineering and design fits into a 6-8 science curriculum, and will be able implement an engineering and design activity into their classroom

Learning Outcome #2
Participants will be able to better speak to the engineering and design process and how it relates to science education and digital citizenry
