Students explore ways to pollinate plants in a greenhouse by creating a model plant pollinator. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to create a model plant pollinator, students prepare for essential skills of the 21st century. Students work through the Engineering Design Process – to learn the value of rethinking and supporting multiple solutions.
