How I Use It
My students love Design Squad! We have used it to explore and practice the engineering design process as well as make it a staple in our maker spaces. The biggest challenge is just making sure we have materials on hand. It provides so many different options.
My Take
This is a great resource and works well with any exploration into the engineering design process. This helps students understand about problem-solving, failure, redesign, and it gives them different content options.
