# Know and use a deliberate design process | Little Engineers | K-2

January 22, 2021

Students will be introduced to the Engineering Design Process. A video and class discussion will familiarize students with real-life application of the Engineering Design Process and how to perform each step. They will then be tasked to do a small explorative project to help Jessi (from the SciShow Kids video) solve her problem using the Engineering Design Process. This activity also gives tips for performing these types of collaborative tasks with your younger learners.
