Summary
Examines prototypical, engineering designs modelling how students modify these and learn physical science principles as they do so. Philip Sadler, Ed.D. believes young children are natural designers and builders, but if their interest is not fostered, it may wane as they move through the grades. This workshop focuses on the use of simple design prototypes that children are asked to improve upon in order to meet a particular challenge. The theories are tested in middle school classrooms and discussed by teachers using design experiences using with their students.
