Abstract
Design is a critical component of any engineering curriculum. It is possible to integrate a sophomore engineering design course focused on the theory of design and its application with the curriculum found in an elementary (K–5) school. The primary objective was to design science demonstrations for local elementary schools as part of a sophomore design course at The University of Georgia. This joint venture proves to be valuable for both sophomore engineers and elementary science students.
