The Engineering Process

The engineering procedure is a sequence of steps used by engineers, developers and scientists to create a new product or solution. These products are often used in everyday life, and can solve problems faced by consumers or other users.

Students begin by defining the problem and researching it. They then identify requirements that must be met. Then students brainstorm ideas and think about what others have already done to solve this problem.

After they have created a list of possible solutions, they pick the best one and build a prototyping. This step allows students to see that they have made a lot of progress and can see their solution become a reality.

After building their prototypes, students test them to see if the work as expected. They can use the prototypes as a tool to improve on their designs.

Before they can have a finished design, they will probably go through several different prototypes. This iterative procedure teaches the designers to always improve their designs. They can't be satisfied until they've done everything possible to create the best design.

Whether your students decide to become engineers or not, the process of engineering is something they can use throughout their lives to solve any problems. They can apply their skills to any project they choose, from making sneakers to building skyscrapers.
