One 40-minute class period


How can we improve our design plan?


  • Building materials list
  • Order forms/budget
  • Building work plan

Lesson Level Learning Objectives:

  • MS-ETS1-4: Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.


  • Make changes, add to and complete their work plan and budget for second build day.

What we Figured Out: 

  • Students will put a plan into place using the phase change material in their incubator design.

Questions we still have:

  • How will our new plan work?
  • Does the new plan meet all of the criteria and constraints?
