Applying the Engineering Design Cycle - Mars Rover Challenge
Engineers innovate by applying their knowledge, skills, and creativity to improve our future world. The engineering design cycle is a framework for thinking that can be broadly applied across all subjects and connects well to the Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum.
In this workshop, participants will explore a hands-on engineering and STEM activity that involves building and testing a “Mars Lander”. With the recent landing of the Perseverance Rover on Mars, participants will get to learn a little about Mars exploration and have the opportunity to act as engineers to prototype their own “Mars Lander” using suggested materials. Participants will leave this workshop with a ready-to-go activity with modifications so that they can introduce engineering into their classrooms.
