Intro to Engineering

Intro to Engineering in 6th Grade!
Pasta Bridge
For 6th Grade Intro to Engineering, students learn about the design practice and use it to perform specified tasks.  Their first project was to develop a paper airplane from a single piece of copy paper that flew down the hallway further than any other persons.  Students researched multiple designs, sketched their favorite designs, determined which design would work best, sketched out/wrote directions on how to make their airplanes, prototyped their airplanes, and finally they created their plane and flew it down the hallway.  Currently we are working on pasta bridges that will hold the most weight, and our final project will be creating the fastest pinewood derby car.
