In this unit, students will prepare for developing their own senior project by engaging in a collaboratively imagined natural disaster. The learning activities are based on Unit 1 of Project Lead The Way's Engineering, Design and Development course; and elements A & B from the Engineering Design Process Portfolio Scoring Rubric.
In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in Economics and English Language Arts (ELA) that supplement the primary core area of study.
Students will be learning about the design process and resource scarcity. Students will work individually and in teams to brainstorm projects that they will develop later on in the course.
The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Eugene Mahmoud (CTE), Lanisha Kelly (Economics), and Shelley McDonald (ELA) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Mina Greas.
