STEM in Action® Helping Hand Design - Online Resources
Students learn about animal adaptations and then use their findings to plan, build, and test an assistive technology for people who cannot bend over to pick up objects. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to create an assistive device for grabbing, gripping, and picking up objects, 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.
