Basically, this is a Design Problem – so your steps should follow the Design Process.
- Define the problem: Your team must design and build a working LED light (with on/off) (using AA batteries)
- 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
- Brainstorm ideas: all students need a minimum of 9 thumbnail sketches and 1 full size, labeled sketch (from one of the thumbnail)
- 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.
