Doable Engineering Science Investigations Geared for Non-science Students

Project DESIGNS researched, developed, and tested a full-year physical science curriculum based on engineering challenges for middle school students. A team of middle school physical science teachers, engineers, and scientists produced effective, contemporary, activity-based physical science materials dealing with "designing to constraints."

Check out the Project DESIGNS Information page for a more detailed description of the project. The Project DESIGNS Challenge Criteria are also available for your review.

Project DESIGNS was funded by the National Science Foundation.
