Students explore habitats and what animals need to survive. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to design a patch to help an injured turtle survive, students prepare for essential skills of the 21st century. Students work through the Engineering Design Process – to learn the value of rethinking and supporting multiple solutions.
