The engineering process is a set of steps that engineers, developers, and scientists use to create products or solutions. These products or solution are used in daily life and may solve issues that users or consumers experience.
Students begin by defining the problem and researching it. They then identify requirements that must be met. Then, they brainstorm why not try these out ideas and consider what other people have done to solve a similar problem.
They then choose the best solution from their list and build a working prototype. This step shows that students have achieved a great deal and can see the idea become a real-life solution.
After building their prototypes, students test them to see if the work as expected. They can also use prototypes to improve their designs.
Before they can have a finished design, they will probably go through several different prototypes. This iterative method teaches designers that they should never stop trying to improve the design.
Your students can use the engineering process throughout their lives, regardless of whether they become engineers. They can apply their skills to any project they choose, from making sneakers to building skyscrapers.
