In children's engineering, youngsters address real challenges that open the doors to relevant areas of study. Examples of critical areas include aesthetics, spatial and mathematical relationships, energy transfer, physical structures, materials science and communication. Through design technology, children's engineering, children develop and physically represent their understanding of more abstract notions in concrete and accessible forms.
