8.2 Technology Education, Engineering, and Design All students will develop an understanding of the nature and impact of technology, engineering, technological design, and the designed world, as they relate to the individual, global society, and the environment.
B. Design: Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision-Making
By the end of Grade 2 By the end of Grade 4 By the end of Grade 8 By the end of Grade 12
Content: The design process is a systematic approach to solving problems.

8.2.2.B.1 Brainstorm and devise a plan to repair a broken toy or tool using the design process.
