As part of our simple machines unit, students listened to a presentation by expert Paul Cooper on orthographic (2D technical) drawings.  Through the engineering design process, each student has come up with an idea for a machine or gadget that can solve a specific problem.  At this stage, students are creating technical drawings (drawn to scale) that accurately represent their ideas.  Later, they will build and test their designs.
