Look at the Week: Sept. 16

This week we introduced criteria and constraints in the context of solving engineering design problems. Criteria are goals we have in solving a design problem. Constraints are aspects of a design solution that must be present to be considered successful. Students investigated this phenomena by building their own paper towers using provided criteria and constraints. They self assessed their towers using a rubric and determined that the groups with well defined criteria and constraints were more successful.
