Using Engineering as a Boot Camp for Inquiry-based Learning

Session 2
John Kamal — Science Leadership Academy

How can the engineering design process and design thinking be used as models for inquiry-based learning? At SLA, every student takes Introduction to Engineering in 9th grade. Join SLA Center City's engineering teacher in the SLA Shop to discuss how engineering challenges can be used to learn and exercise practices critical to inquiry-based learning. Best practices in defining problems, brainstorming, collaboration, project management, and iteration are explored in detail. The conversation will include a survey of SLA engineering projects and a discussion with SLA engineering students.

Conversational Practice
