Inventors Club focuses on teaching students the engineering design process through weekly projects spanning a variety of engineering challenges. This program begins a new unit every five weeks. For more information on specific units, please see the sections below.
The goal is to develop students' problem solving ability through instilling the habit to:
Ask: What is the problem? How have others approached it? What are the constraints?
Imagine: Consider possible solutions through brainstorming then choose one possible solution.
Plan: Draw a diagram, make material lists and develop a plan of action.
Create: Follow the plan.
Improve: Analyze how to make things better.
