The Guide Engineering Badge focuses on the practical approach to design: a primary engineering skill
However, engineering design could be described as the practical application of scientific principles
An understanding of these principles is critical for engineering design.
This activity explores some of the basic principles in a fun way. Units can complete one or all activities (available on OGM) for this option.
Leaders’ Hints See additional information overleaf
