Welcome to engineering Kindergarten! We'll be exploring the "E" in STEM, learning the fascinating world that engineers have helped design. We'll learn what technology REALLY means and officially define many key vocabulary terms that are the foundation of an engineer's work: non-living, human-made, materials, test, and improve!
Just because objects are non-living, does not mean an engineer designed them. Take rocks, water, or soil for example. They are non-living, but they are also natural. Natural objects are not designed by engineers. Our focus this week is on distinguishing between natural and human-made objects.
PARENTS! Consider downloading the "Technology Flashcards" App. It's FREE and a good way to practice identifying technologies that engineers design.
