•  The Engineering Design Process

    The Engineering Design Process is a series of steps that engineers use to guide them as they solve problems.  Students at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School # 9 work through this process on a variety of topics and are encouraged to use these steps on a daily basis as they problem-solve.
