Oklahoma HS Engineering Design Showcase OK Department of CareerTech STEM Division Metro Technology Center, Springlake Campus 1900 Springlake Drive, Oklahoma City 2013 Summer Conference Jason Rausch - PLTW August 2, 2013 2:00-2:50 3:00-3:50 First Ever Statewide EDD Event in OK June 3rd, 2013 Moore Norman Technology Center (2013) OKHS Engineering Design Showcase • Six teams from across Oklahoma qualified through on line registration and portfolio entry. • Each team presented 5-8 minute summary of design process to a panel of engineers. • After presentations, students show prototypes and displays in a tradeshow Q and A format for 30 minutes. 2013 Winners OKHS Engineering Design Showcase • One team selected to receive $1000 cash scholarship from the Oklahoma Engineering Foundation. Multi-size Screwdriver Nicholas Shirley, Blythe Lockart, Alex Chitwood, and Kyle Kim Tulsa Technology Center (2014) OKHS Engineering Design Showcase Registration Process • Opportunity is currently posted to the Innovation Portal • Send Registration to: firstname.lastname@example.org • Scott Makintubee - Planning Chairperson / EDD MT Format of Showcase / Requirements • 5-8 minute Summary Presentation (Top 6) • 3 Panel Display (All) • Testable Prototype (All) • Engineering Notebook (All) (2014) OKHS Engineering Design Showcase Timeline: • Students will register and create project portfolios online. (Innovation Portal) • Students will submit registration with teacher approval. (Registration will tentatively close March 1st 2014) • Students will submit EDD projects for consideration. (Tentatively May 1st 2014) • All qualifying teams will be invited to statewide event (date TBD).The top six teams will present on stage for final award consideration. All teams will participate in tradeshow format presentations. (3 panel display, prototype, engineer’s notebook) How Do I Help Students Prepare? • What will students actually be evaluated on? Is there a rubric? • What is the Innovation Portal? Why use it for submission? • Why and how should I use the Innovation Portal in my class • New tools for your EDD classroom. An Engineering Design Process • The award goes to the team that best presents an authentic and well documented design process. (not necessarily which prototype actually worked…) • EDD is about process, not only the solution. A well done EDD project should show evidence of: • • • • • • Project Management Skills Research Design Prototyping and Testing Reflection and Stakeholder Feedback Professional Skills and Communication Skills An Engineering Design Process An Engineering Design Process The “Grand Pitfalls” of EDD: • No Research - It has clearly been done before, you just never bothered to find out or worse, chose not to disclose.) • One Design - Never exploring options other than the first thing you thought of. No diversity. • Craftsmanship - It does matter. Seek expert help if you are not a master craftsman. They can teach you. • Poor Testing - A good project will have qualitative testing. Testimonials are not testing. • Reflection and Stakeholder Feedback – Is there any? Are your experts really experts? • Professional Skills and Communication Skills The EDPPSR The Engineering Design Process Portfolio Scoring Rubric. • Used for online qualification scoring. • A simplified one page rubric will be used at competition to determine the winner based on the EDPPSR Why Should I be using the EDPPSR in my EDD Classroom? • Common Language for Engineering Design. • Developed by Post-Secondary and Industry. • “AP Engineering May Be on the Horizon” By Erik Robelen on March 29, 2013 2:15 PM • Completing 3rd year of 3 year validation study (NSF) • New alignment of PLTW EDD curriculum resources to match the language and structure of the assessment rubric. The EDPPSR and PLTW EDD Curriculum Always work with the end in sight… Instructional resources on the LMS now match the assessment tool. PLTW EDD Curriculum Is this 2013 EDD Curriculum really new? Yes and No. • Understanding by Design Frameworks • Standards and Objectives Alignment Tool • Next Generation Science Standards • Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (HS) • Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts • The PLTW Learning Management System • The Engineering Design Process Portfolio Scoring Rubric • The Innovation Portal Understanding by Design Frameworks Available soon Standards and Objectives Alignment Tool Available now The PLTW Learning Management System Available now The Innovation Portal What is the Innovation Portal? • The only way to score this volume of projects is through an online delivery system. • Has EDPPSR scoring system built in. • Completing 3rd year of Beta. • New development support in 2013-2014 from… (announcement soon) • Tour of the Innovation Portal • Opportunities • Dashboard • Scoring Tool Best Practices in EDD • Introduce students to the EDPPSR early on. It creates a common language and a target for student to shoot for. • Help your students develop a meaningful project name that is engineering or scientific in nature. • This is not an “invention” or “marketing course”. No silly names. • It is okay for the project name to “evolve”. • Don’t label projects “My EDD Project”. • Introduce student to the Innovation Portal early on and make sure the students provide enough context for the reviewer. Does the judge have enough information to score the page? • Don’t attach a ppt. • Don’t create a page with nothing but links. • 3-5 paragraphs. (2014) OKHS Engineering Design Showcase Call for Support • Sign up students and submit! You classroom will be supporting research and opportunities that will have a dramatic impact on high school education over the next few years. • Event Planning – Scott Makintubee • Communication • Dates • Judges • Growing prize/scholarship opportunities • Inviting stakeholders in engineering (2014) OKHS Engineering Design Showcase Questions?
