inspiring innovation through engineering design and ideation
teaching, engineering design, household products, design
Using the Boston Museum Engineering Design Process (Engineering is Elementary, 2018), students begin by asking questions about the problem they are trying to solve. While it is common for classroom design challenges to revolve around the creation of a novel product (i.e., inventing), we present here a lesson plan and classroom challenge that emphasize innovating through both engineering design and ideation. Cameron Moon is a graduate research assistant and Master's student in the Engineering/ Technology Teacher Education program in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute at Purdue University.
