In order to solve problems, engineers must follow an engineering design process. Come and be a part of this hands-on workshop which will consist of mini challenges centered on easy engineering design projects. Using the NASA Beginning Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) curriculum and other NASA activities, educators will explore, design, and construct simple engineering projects. Materials needed for the activities are inexpensive and can often be found in the classroom. Educators will experience problem solving while working in groups.
