Elementary Engineering and Design Thinking

During this 18 day project, students will learn how to design and build fun toys designed to meet a disabled child’s needs. First, they research the therapeutic needs of the disabled child and brainstorm innovative ways toys can meet those needs. To refine the design, the students present mockups to the child, family, and therapists and collect feedback. As they build the toy, students learn to use different tools and technologies. At exhibition time, the child and family are invited to a ceremony where the final version of the toy is presented.
