When engineers set out to solve a real world problem, they go through an engineering design process—in much the same way you might throw an impromptu taco party. Learn about the steps of the engineering design process in this animated video from KQED.

    May Be Just What I Need for a New Situation
    Well done video. Just what it claims, a intro to requirements gathering for all ages. I am hopeful the taco-making analogy might allow me to get off on the right foot with middle school-ers. We'll see.

    Great way to explain the Engineering Design Process
    I think the video can be used the explain the Engineering Design Process for kids and adults alike. It should be useful for teachers or even for engineers to explain the process to their non-engineering friends and family. Too often people don't seem to know what engineers do. Thanks for sharing!

    Bringing the Engineering Design Process to life with a video
    I love the mashup of the engineering design process with planning a taco party. By going with a topic that is fun and relatable, I think the video is likely to capture and hold kids’ attention. Who’s not going to like tacos and parties? I could see using the video as a jump-start to introducing the ...

    Simplified and well-constructed modeling analogy for what an engineering process is like.
    Well-constructed video with visual and physical interpretation prioritizing and rationalizing the outcome of an engineering process using the analogy of a physical daily need process that it is well understood and used by everyone, independently from their experience or education level, pointing ...
