A Student's Perspective: The Green Team's Project
Pratt, Kyle
Tech Directions, v70 n9 p17 Apr 2011
In Mr. Wood's technology class, students learned about many aspects of engineering, including design of a product, teamwork, testing hypotheses, and testing the final product. In this article, the author describes how his class, particularly his team, applied everything they learned about the process to their kayak design challenge using the IDEAL ("identifying" the problem at hand, "defining" alternative goals, "exploring" possible strategies, "assess" and "act", and "look back" and "learn") problem-solving process to create the kayak.
