Students will work in teams to design and build a model of a space habitat using the engineering design process.
- Apply the steps of the engineering design process to successfully complete a team challenge.
- Design and build their own space habitat.
- Test their design, make observations, and collect data for analysis.
- Improve their model based upon the results of the experiment.
