Using readily available materials, this workshop will utilize hands-on activities and discussion to illustrate how to integrate engineering practices into middle school life science. By participating in challenges, such as designing an artificial heart valve, participants will experience aspects of the engineering design cycle. The workshop will emphasize the interconnectedness of the components of the science and engineering practices and the integration of the three dimensions of the NGSS.
