Prep Reminder

The Educator Guide has a script, materials list, and prep directions. Be sure to have it open and ready to help guide you through every activity.

* Post the Engineering Design Process poster.
* Arrange the Space Screens similar to Activities 4 and 5.
* Create a Materials Table with the materials from Activity 4.
* Invite people from the community (including families and friends of youth) to the Engineering Showcase, and assign roles using the Scientists Cards.

Key Terms

Communicate (in engineering): To share information, data, or ideas in order to improve designs or inspire new designs.

EDP Steps Used In This Activity



Youth prepare a final presentation. They recommend a site using the data they have gathered as evidence.

Quick Tips

* If you do not have an opportunity to brief the visitors playing the scientists, have one or more youth provide a summary of the different missions.
* Ask questions to help youth accurately communicate their results.

End of Activity Engineering Reflection

Today we communicated our recommendations to the scientists. The EDP is a process we can use to solve other problems.

Key Take Away

We can communicate our recommendations based on the data we collected with our remote sensing technologies.
