Instructional Ideas

  • Identify professionals in the community to help students build their own products
Classroom Considerations

  • Check with your school and community to find machining and manufacturing equipment as it is required for the lesson
  • Allow much more time than suggested; if you are only working during class and using shared equipment, the process could last weeks
  • This is the final lesson in a six-lesson series
 
Pros

  • Evaluation rubric included
Cons

  • If donated materials and machinery cannot be found, designs will be more simplistic
