Teach the engineering design process and more with this 49 slide Google Slide presentation. It’s not safe to assume that you’re students will automatically be able to ask strong questions or write a good scientific hypothesis, but after this presentation they should walk away with a much stronger understanding of the purpose of the scientific method.
This presentation covers:
- the stages of the engineering design process
- how technology is improved / intended benefits and unintended consequences
- several examples of engineering careers and how they relate to everyday life
- intended benefit
- unintended consequence
This is an interactive lesson with several slides requiring student interaction. You can have students type in the presentation itself by making a copy for each student or connect to interactive presentation apps such as Nearpod or Peardeck.
This lesson is compatible for student paced or instructor paced presentation.
Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.
