Overview
In this module, students will design a scale model of a delivery drone payload using computational thinking skills, the Engineering Design Process, and Grade 7 mathematics. Students will use scale factor to find the dimensions of scale models. Students will recognize scale factor as the ratio of scale dimensions to actual dimensions, without regard to units.
