When engineers set out to solve a real-world problem, they go through the engineering design process. You may go through a similar process if you decided to throw an impromptu taco party.
The engineering design process includes:
Defining the problem
Identifying constraints and criteria for your solution
Brainstorming multiple solutions for the problem
Selecting the most promising solution
Prototyping your solution
Testing and evaluating your prototype
Iterating to improve your prototype
Communicating your solution
With this video, have fun comparing the engineering design process to throwing an impromptu taco party.
