The 5 Steps of the Engineering Design Process
Engineers use their science and math knowledge to explore all possible options and compare many designs. This is called open-ended design because you don’t know what the best solution will be. The engineering design process has 5 steps: ask, imagine, plan, create, and test. In this class we used this process twice. Ask.Th...
