Background
An interest in aerospace engineering can lead individuals toward an exciting career with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). NASA engineers work together to create safe space crafts that transport people and supplies into orbit, as well as to other planets. Working outside of Earth’s atmosphere poses many unique challenges, and engineers must use strong analytical skills as well as creativity to determine the most effective design for each space craft.
Challenge
Your task is to take on the role of an aerospace engineer with NASA charged with developing a new space craft. One of NASA’s current projects involves the exploration of Mars. Not only must engineers design a shuttle that can get to the Red Planet, but they must design a landing craft capable of touching down safely, too! You are tasked, in groups, to design a landing craft that is capable of landing upright on the surface of Mars!
PBL Phase 4: Publish & Present
* Create a Paper Slide video about your landing craft to be able to share your learnings with other aerospace engineers.
* Share your landing craft and your design decisions with your class.
* Have your teacher tweet an image of your landing craft and results to #DESTEM. Browse and comment on other designs tagged with #DESTEM.
#5Challenge
Your task is to take on the role of a business analyst with EA Sports: Madden NFL. The company sold over 3.27 million copies of the 2016 PS4 version of the game alone, however, they are always looking to expand their market. Your task is to analyze trends in sales history for all sports video games, viewership of sports, and current/history of EA Sports games. Using all this data, you will need to make a recommendation to EA Sports leadership on the next game for expansion (with supporting evidence).
PBL Phase 4: Publish & Present
Finalize your “Game Expansion” visual presentation. Make sure your presentation includes visual representations of the data you collected.
* Use the Upload function to submit your challenge. (If you are sharing a link you will need to use the “create” function)
* Have your teacher tweet a picture of your show presentation along with a short explanation of your group’s thinking to #DESTEM.
