Empowering young adults to make a difference within their community can make engineering a very powerful tool. I have seen wonderful examples where students have helped engineer solutions to problems in their buildings, on school grounds, or within their community. A list of ideas (Ones that I have actually done or others have done): Studying Agricultural run off and it effects on the local watershed, developing an electrical conservation plan for their campus, conducting a heat loss survey and then weather proofing the school, etc. The aforementioned themes (and similar) allow for the standards to be taught within a meaningful context. If you would like suggestions on how you might be able to integrate engineering design, please offer up a standard to the community and we will see what we can do to provide assistance!
