Design and Invention Experience

Join me to learn that inventing is not just one idea, but many! It's about exploring, and choosing the best ideas you can come up with. We'll test this by creating an egg drop which means that we will design a solution to stopping an egg from being broken when dropped.

To explore this experience together, we can...: You'll feel different materials and determine which would work best for your design. You'll see an egg, and feel how fragile it is. And you'll see the height you have to drop it from, and how gravity affects it.
-: You'll learn the term "iteration." And we will keep building on your design to improve it.
-: To understand that iteration is an important part of all design, and that invention isn't just one idea! In order to have a good idea you have to have lots of ideas.

Reflection Questions
Have you tried designing a solution to another problem? Did you remember to come up with many ideas and iterate?
