Do you like to build things using blocks, Legos, or Lincoln Logs? Some construction projects are bigger than others. They are all about measuring, estimating, and calculating. Constructing anything requires a lot of numbers. This STEM guide takes you into the life of an engineer while learning how to define a simple design problem reflecting a need or want that includes constraints on materials, time, and cost.
