This is a two part review of a 10-day module in which students work on several mini-design challenges that culminate in a multi-day engineering design challenge. In the first 6 modules, students focus on Structure and Properties of Matter to design strong and lightweight materials while focusing on the Engineering Design Process. In modules 7-10, students engage in a Composites Engineering Design Challenge as they design test, retest, optimize, and present their prototypes of a new type of composite material with the most tensile strength. The focus of this review is on modules 7-10, the culminating design challenge. The entire 10 day module is included here for reference: https://www.teachingchannel.org/composite-materials-lesson-plan-boeing
