What you need to know:
Engineering is a process used to solve problems by designing, building and testing things. An engineer is a person who uses math and science to create new things, solve problems or make things better. Some engineers work to build structures or buildings. A structure is the result of building or constructing something by arranging materials or parts. In engineering, structures are specially designed to make buildings safe and durable. How a structure or building is designed can affect how sturdy and safe it is.
What you will do and learn:
In this activity, you will practice using the engineering process to build the model of a hut. A hut is a simple structure or dwelling that can be compared to a tent, igloo or small shelter. The goal of this activity is to build a hut that can fit a small toy inside and is strong enough to support a heavy book without collapsing.
