Students will learn to describe mechanisms and how to reverse engineer (deconstruct or dissect) a technology of their choice and present it as a poster. I would not suggest other forms at this point because the poster can be easily accessed in the classroom as an exemplar for following years and provides a high level of proof that an actual technology has been explored rather than a compilation of virtual dissections. They will complete a case study of a business enterprise that solves a developing world social issue for women and girls. Students will then consider how to make a better world through an innovation or invention they identify and create a potential business which they will present in a Dragon Den style format to the class and potentially to the Dragon Den.
