STEM in Action® Project Park Design - Online Resources


Students explore patterns of the Earth and the Sun to determine when and where shadows cover the park. Then, they design a park plan with warm, sunny benches. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to create a park model, 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.
