C4K has developed Sci-Gineering to look at science learning through the lens of the Engineering Process.  The simple Engineering Design model below is fleshed out to identify key skills that effective science learning and thinking embrace and then focuses on activities that will make the skills more concrete.  Sci-Gineering looks at ways to promote the 16 Habits of the Mind as well Bloom’s Taxonomy of Questioning.

The format for each Learning Module is:
  1. Design Element
  2. Skill
  3. Lesson
  4. Closing 

      The Design Element can be found in the model above.  Sci-Gineering has identified these five skills used by scientists and engineers:  observe, infer, classify, make models, and predict.  There are 10 lessons for each Design Element.  The materials for each of the Design Elements are provided.
