Design Process

We have learned about the design process as presented by PLTW. This week the students will do a build challenge that they will use the design process including a design brief and decision matrix. I hope they enjoy the build and understand how the process is documented.

Product Innovation

Last week, we learned about product innovation. This week, we will expound on these ideas when we experience "Deep Dive" . We should do this mid week. This is a fun activity students typically enjoy!


We are hoping the STEM lab will be open soon. They are working on the steps and then we should be using it for our build activities. It is going to be awesome when it is ready! We will be allowed to go in and work when the construction workers are not there. I am excited to have so much space to work in.
