Applying the Engineering Design Cycle - Mars Lander Design Challenge

Engineering is a broad field that presents many opportunities for creative problem solving and hands-on learning. The engineering design cycle is a framework for thinking that can be broadly applied across all subjects and connects well to the Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum. In this workshop, you’ll act as engineers and participate in a hands-on STEM lesson related to space science, while utilizing the engineering design cycle. You will build a “Mars Lander” and walk away with a ready-to-go activity to run in your classrooms. Please have tape, glue, scissors, popsicle sticks, string/yarn, and building supplies from your recycling bin like cardboard, containers, etc.
