Engineering Design Project Plan and Reflection Document- Middle School

Working in our library with a middle school science teacher - new team building activity incorporating engineering design- which will then tie into their study of living and non-living things, misconceptions, etc…
We had very little time- in a little over an hour I introduced the magic of littleBits with part of the Ayah Bdeir TED talk - then some highlights of our younger kids experience - then an overview of the engineering design process - introduced the bits- and let 'em go - They spent quite a bit of time answering the pre-questions on the project plan first - see Google doc below. We ended up having the students come back the next day to finish - total time about 2 1/2 hours.
