Do That Design
Work as a team to create a new contraption using a set of materials. Then write out how you made it. Can others in your class re-create your design exactly…with just your written instructions? This experience emphasizes the importance of communication in manufacturing.
Explore a real working Mack Truck dashboard up close…then try re-creating the components using Little Bits electronics. Bonus challenge: make all of your components work together as a system!
