Working Together to Save Lives

by: Page Keeley, Cary Sneider, and Mihir Ravel

The purpose of this assessment probe is to elicit students’ ideas about the role of different professions in contributing to the solution of a problem that benefits society, such as the development of a lifesaving device. The probe is designed to determine if students realize that not only do engineers and scientists work closely, but they also work in teams that require the contributions of people in a variety of other professions, such as nurses, doctors, psychologists, and therapists.
