Thinking about how to blend NGSS and Startup Weekend designing. I want to link the NGSS Engineering Challenges to a Design process that makes this engaging for 8th graders and combines the engagement of engineering/entrepreneurial thinking.
Wouldn't it be fantastic to work through these challenges with them and then be able to cut them loose to define their own projects and find their own solutions?
The three elements I know I'll have is Pitch, Build, Launch to combine with the Challenges. Should be dynamic!
