Your Challenge: Create a Public Service Announcement (1 hour) > Print/View All Notes
Students will receive a challenge to create a public service announcement that educates the public about energy consumption and its impact on the environment. Before beginning this activity, divide your class into STEM teams of 3 - 4 students each. Students will need to work in STEM teams for the remainder of the lesson. (See
for more information on forming STEM teams.) Direct students to pages 8-17 of their Engineering Portfolios. After students watch the introductory videos, go over the steps in the engineering design process and make sure that students understand what each step means. Ask them to use the information they have collected and brainstorm new ideas with their team to complete
questions 1 - 4.
