        What Is the Engineering Design Process?

        Each part of the engineering design process which is fundamental to any successful project is illustrated in this video video segment adapted from Thinking Big, Building Small. Though it does this in the context of building skyscrapers, the process is applicable to any sort of project, including constructing schools, building bridges, and even manufacturing sneakers. Students will recognize the value of going through its steps sequentially when constructing scale models. This resource is useful for introducing components of Engineering Design (ETS) from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to grades 3-12 students.

        This resource was adapted from Building Big: "Thinking Big, Building Small."
