Design Team Challenge 

“Heroes of Discovery: Mindsets Behind the Process of Progress”

Our first design team challenge is underway!

Students are working collaboratively in small teams to research three heroes: a scientist, a mathematician, and a writer/orator. Each discipline has many “heroes of discovery” that model the growth mindset and discovery process. These heroes have influenced and impacted history and contemporary heroes will continue to define future discovery and progress.

Once the team has determined their heroes, they will design and create a 3D-printed/FabLab artifact and 
a 3-5 minute mixed-media documentary-style video about these characters.  


EnvisionEdPlus attended a day at iSTEM to create our first video to promote how our iSTEM students are engaged and to identify and define STEM.  Our students, your children, rocked it!  The video should be complete and posted on our website by September 11, 2015.  We can't wait to see the end result!
