Hands-On Engineering immerses students in the world of real-life engineers. Through engaging authentic learning experiences, students will create innovative solutions to relevant and timely design and engineering challenges while building STEM skills. This book is packed with activities that can be easily conducted in the classroom using everyday materials and includes everything teachers need to help students think analytically, assess new situations, and solve hands-on, real-world problems. From engaging in practical problem solving and collaboration to employing imagination and perseverance, students will not just learn about engineering—they will be engineers!
