Warm Up!

  • You may have done the exercise “What can I do with this brick?”

  • Let’s turn it around: What CAN’T you do with this brick?

Creativity

  • Divergent

    • Considered by most to be “creative thinking”

    • Think broadly

    • Develop many alternatives

  • Convergent

    • Narrow a broad set of alternatives to a feasible set of solutions

  • And, for scientific creativity, logical thinking

  • Used interchangeably with “innovation” and “problem solving”

  • Roles of curiosity and expertise

Engineering Design Process Models

1. Identify the need or problem

2. Research the need or problem

8. Redesign

7. Communicate the solution(s)

3. Develop possible solutions

4. Select the best possible solution(s)

6. Test and evaluate

5. Construct prototype(s)

Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Framework, October 2006, page 84

What Can I Do in My Classroom?

  • Encourage discovery learning

    • Keep a cache of “found items”

    • Have students brainstorm repurposing them

  • Encourage mastery learning

    • Create a penalty-free failure zone

      • We learn from what we can’t do as well as what we can do!

  • Promote design-build-test

  • Use both top-downand bottom-up approaches

  • Conduct both structured and unstructured creativity activities and exercises
