NASA's BEST -- The Engineering Design Process
The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineers use to guide them as they solve problems. Engineers must ask a question, imagine a solution, plan a design, create that model, experiment and test that model, then take time to improve the original -- all steps that are crucial to mission success at NASA.
This video series, hosted by Don Higdon, will guide you through the steps in the engineering design process and help introduce students to the methods engineers use to approach and solve a design problem.
