    Project Outline and Evalutation

    Samnple Design Logs

    Pedagogy: engineering design cycle, problem solving, 21st century skills

    Details: Design and build a device that serves some useful purpose at home or school. The device must “do something”: it must have moving parts that help perform some interesting or useful task. The device can be a cardboard version of a commonly known device, or it can be an original device, never dreamed up before! Creativity and ingenuity are an important factor. The device must work. The primary material the device is made from should be cardboard.
