SCI-EL.ETS1.01 Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
Clarification Statement Refer to the Engineering Design Process in the link above for a visual flow chart. They could include an item/object either at home or school that may make life easier or more efficient.
Possible solutions to a problem are limited by available materials and resources (constraints). The success of a designed solution is determined by considering the desired features of a solution (criteria).
Different proposals for solutions can be compared on the basis of how well each one meets the specified criteria for success or how well each takes the constraints into account.
