A Design-Based Game Changing Challenge
"It is 8:30 a.m. on the first day of school. You approach your first class as a new fourth grader. You see many new faces. Your hands are sweaty, your mouth is dry, and you do not know why you are in the Engineering Design class. What is Engineering Design you ask? Fortunately, you do not have to wonder for very long. Your teacher has a plan!"

Courtney Bryant is the STEAM Project Manager and Engineering Design Teacher at Drew Charter School in Atlanta.
