Prototyping with Purpose is a series of design and engineering challenges you can use to teach your (GRADES 4-8) students — either remotely or in the classroom.
This series of 7 challenges engages students in the positive power of engineering and human-centered design.
This series can easily be leveled up or down to address students in grades 4-8 and includes instruction for you as well as videos that can be assigned directly to students.
Centered on the work e-NABLE has done to bring 3D printed prosthetics to people all around the world, your students will learn about the Engineering Design Process, how makers and engineers are using that process in the face of COVID-19, the power of empathy in design, anatomy, and simple machine mechanics.
The culminating challenge will give your students the opportunity to create an initial prototype of an upper limb prosthetic.
The 7 included lessons are:
1. Understanding the Engineering Design Process.
2. Using Technology for Social Good.
3. What is a Limb Difference?
4. Getting to Know e-NABLE
5. Connecting to Anatomy
6. Simple Machines and the Human Body
7. Creating a Prototype
Your students will:
1. Be empowered by witnessing the positive impact that “regular people” can make by using their imagination and resources for good.
2. Engage in activities that strengthen empathy and social emotional learning while helping them gain a greater understanding of limb differences.
3. Utilize design thinking and creativity to create a prototype of a prosthetic hand.
4. Increase their understanding of human anatomy and simple machines.
5. Connect prosthetic prototyping to anatomy and biology learning goals.
