This column presents ideas and techniques to enhance your science teaching. In this issue the authors discuss a design project they have used with upper elementary students (grades 4–6). They note ways to engage students in thinking philosophically about technology to meet engineering design outcomes in the NGSS. By asking students to reflect on their designs, they encourage deeper understanding of the SEPs and deeper technological literacy.
