Broad Concept: Engineering
design involves practical problem solving, research, development, and invention
and requires designing, drawing, building, testing, and redesigning.
and explain the steps of the engineering design process, i.e., identify the
problem, research the problem, develop possible solutions, select the best
possible solution (s), construct a prototype, test and evaluate, communicate
the solution (s), and redesign.
knowledge of pictorial and multi-view drawings (e.g., orthographic projection,
isometric, oblique, perspective) using proper techniques.
the use of drafting techniques with paper and pencil or computer-aided design
(CAD) systems when available.
scale and proportion to drawings, e.g., 1 /4 ² =
plans, diagrams, and working drawings in the construction of a prototype.
• Create an
engineering design presentation using multimedia, oral, and written
• Choose the
optimal solution to a problem, clearly documenting ideas against design
criteria and constraints, and explain how human values, economics, ergonomics,
and environmental considerations have influenced the solution. (1.1)
• Have students utilize library resources/internet
to research the patent process (1.1, 1.2, 1.5)
• Create pictorial and multi-view drawings that
include scaling and dimensioning. (1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5)
• Create plans, diagrams, and working drawings in
the construction of a prototype. (1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5)
• Create drawings that include scale and dimension.
