Summer SAVY 2013, Session 1: Engineering is Elementary (Day 1)

Engineering is Elementary – Day 1

Today was such a wonderful way to start our Engineering is Elementary:  Improving the Play Doh Process class.  We began our morning getting to know our new SAVY friends by sharing our favorite things.  Then students took their pre-assessments which focused on what they knew about technology, engineering, and the engineering design process.  This was followed by a discussion of ideas and why we have inventions.  The class ended with an in depth discussion of what technology is with students having the opportunity to identify, draw and write about everyday technology, the problems the technology fixes, and the materials that are used in constructing the technology.

I look forward to seeing our budding engineers tomorrow.

Have a great evening!
