Next Generation Science Standards: Grades 6-8

Welcome to TeachEngineering’s NGSS Engineering Design-Aligned Center for Grades 6-8 Educators!

The TeachEngineering hands-on activities featured here focus on the engineering design component of the NGSS standards.

These hands-on activities focus on the grades 6-8 Engineering Design standards that provide students with an opportunity to define constraints and criteria of a design problem, evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process, analyze data to identify new solutions which better meet the criteria, and develop models to generate data for iterative testing and to optimize a design.
