Design Squad: Invent It, Build It
Challenge budding engineers with a collection of six activities that are designed to meet the National Science Education Standards and the ITEA National Study of Technology Content Standards. Kids invent solutions for needs in everyday life, a way for persons on crutches or in wheelchairs to carry all their stuff, a sturdy, easy to build shelter, and a six-can, animal-safe carryall. They also design a game that gets people up and moving and a device to launch a big cloud of confetti. Requires a PDF Reader to view the files. Spanish language versions of the materials are also available.
