The 13 units in Creating Engineering Design Challenges provide innovative ways to make science and math relevant to middle and high school students through challenge-based learning and the engineering design process. Content areas include biology, chemistry, physical science, and environmental science. Topics range from developing a recipe for cement to implementing geocaching to calculating accurate aim with slingshots and water balloons. You can be sure the units are classroom-ready because they were contributed by the same teachers who developed, used, and revised them. They provide detailed accounts of their units as well as lesson plans and handouts. The book also offers guidance on fostering professional development to support and grow your school s engineering education practice.
