Through the Engineering Design Challenge (EDC), students will participate in authentic learning experiences that allow them to develop valuable skills through rigorous and engaging (STEM) content. 21st CCLC students will use their creativity, curiosity, and analytical thinking while utilizing the engineering design process (EDP). Solving problems using the EDP will be key to the success of the future engineering workforce at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
During this Crew Exploration Vehicle EDC, students will work in teams to create a model for a new space vehicle that can carry two astronauts safely during a drop test. At the conclusion of the challenge, your students will be required to articulate the steps taken in the EDP in a team video that each team creates.
