Engineering Design Curriculum | Mobile Lab Activities
Learning Undefeated created an adaptable, cross-disciplinary framework and model activities for the Texas Mobile STEM Lab to introduce Texas teachers and students to principles of engineering design, aligned to Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The common framework includes defining a problem; identifying criteria and constraints; designing, building, and testing; and evaluation and iteration.
Learning Undefeated provides all instruction and the materials needed to complete engineering design challenges focused on brainstorming, designing, and testing during the mobile laboratory visit. All activities focus on students designing solutions to problems and allow for collaboration and exploration of the content.
Grades: Kindergarten through Grade 8
Activity duration: All activities are 60 minutes in duration.
Class size: The Texas Mobile STEM Lab can host up to 30 students at a time for class
