Modeling Science & Engineering Processes

Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • Describe the scientific inquiry and engineering design processes as circular and flexible rather than rigid and linear.
  • Itemize the various stages of discovery and invention including asking questions, testing and redesign, and reflecting and explaining.
  • Identify opportunities to highlight STEM skills within one’s own behavior, promoting a sense of wonder within children in OST settings.
  • Facilitate opportunities for youth to apply the practices of science and engineering to OST experiences.
