In this 2-part workshop, participants will explore the Engineering for Good Youth Media Challenge, a project-based unit for middle and high school students to engage in human-centered engineering design processes and communicating with media to an audience beyond the classroom. In this unit, students identify problems that disproportionately impact marginalized communities that can be solved or improved through engineering in order to disrupt patterns of injustice and inequity. Participants will analyze student examples, brainstorm topics that fit their subject matter, go through the steps of the engineering design process and create a model infographic communicating their solutions.
Part 1: October 18, 4-6pm PDT
Part 2: October 20, 4-6pm PDT
