Design Project for Students, Teachers, Engineers, and Mentors

Educators are always asking me for help in creative project for their students.  How do you hold a virtual event allowing anyone from 8 to 80 to participate that focuses on creativity and inspires those who dream of becoming an engineer with a passion to design?   The answer is our latest project for all students, teachers, designers, and engineers entitled, “The Drive to Design.”

View the video and click on the tabs to participate.  Download the model to redesign Sam’s lift.   If you doodle in your notebook, share your ideas with us.  As a mentor, tell your design story. 

Every day I see amazing designs by engineers; their products change lives, their inspiration is a life-long process.  I hope you will participate.   All materials may be used freely for classroom design projects. Marie
