On Your Own

Everyone can solve problems and every problem has more than one solution. These activities are designed for kids to explore engineering on their own. The only materials you need are your imagination and pencils or crayons!

  • ASK questions about each problem. What do you need to know before you make your plan?
  • IMAGINE how you could solve the problem.
  • Choose your best idea and make your PLAN. You can write the steps you need to take or draw a picture of your design.
