Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • Describe where testing and retesting fit into the overall science and engineering process and into identified 21st century skills.
  • List common terms used by science and engineering professionals during the testing phase of research and development.
  • Create a simple paper structure and test it by varying aspects of the design or launching.
  • Support children in using testing, observations, and retesting as strategies to increase the level of inquiry and understanding in STEM experiences.
  • Describe how to reframe “mistakes” or “failures” into development trials and learning opportunities.
