Start with a story, poem, or reading. Investigate science, tech, engineering, art, and math through 5 subject-focused STEAMvestigations. Then use new skills and understanding as part of the engineering design process during the Unit’s culminating challenge. Teamwork, individual contributions, and the engineering design cycle help students construct and showcase multi-step solution-oriented projects.
