The author presents 26 projects--each with a teacher's guide, photocopiable worksheet, and additional project ideas--for which students use design and engineering methodologies to investigate and build their own solutions."With its varied and engaging activities, 'Hands-on engineering' prompts students to understand and apply the methodologies of design and engineering as they create innovative solutions to challenges. Each challenge requires students to think analytically, assess new situations, and solve a hands-on, real-world problem. As students design their own boats, skyscrapers, wheelbarrows, hammocks, and more, they will need perseverance, imagination, and teamwork. This book's emphasis on practical skills, problem solving, and collaboration makes it an ideal tool with which to teach valuable 21st-century skills."--Pg. of cover.
