Basically, this is a Design Problem – so your steps should follow the Design Process.

  1. Define the problem:  Your team must design and build a working LED light (with on/off) (using AA batteries)
  2. Research:  What knowledge are you lacking?  Who else has already accomplished this? What does the inside of a flashlight look like?  And so on…..  Each team member is to find 3 websites that help increase group collective knowledge
  3. Brainstorm ideas:  all students need a minimum of 9 thumbnail sketches and 1 full size, labeled sketch (from one of the thumbnail)
  4. Discuss, Pick, Plan:  Teams should have a quality presentation time where each shares their thumbnails and full size sketch, including the pros and cons of their best ideas.  After that, discuss the best plans and pick one.
