Grades 3-5 Engineering, Technology and Society:           3-5-ETS1-1

DCI-Possible solutions to a problem are limited by available materials and resources.  The success of a designed solution is determined by considering the desired features of a solution.  Different proposals for solutions can be compared on the basis of how well each one meets the specified criteria for success or how well each takes the constraints into account.


Middle School Engineering, Technology, and Society:MS-ETS1-1; MS-ETS1-4 

DCI-The more precisely a design task’s criteria and constraints can be defined, the more likely it is that the designed solution will be successful.  


High School Engineering, Technology, and Society:HS-ETS 1-3

When evaluating solutions it is important to take into account a range of constraints including cost, safety, reliability and aesthetics and to consider social, cultural and environmental impacts.


Undergraduate Engineering, Technology and Society:  

An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data; an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability; an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams; and an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
