Designing for Equity
The National Engineering Design Competition, Designing for Equity, asks students to first identify an individual or group who experiences some type of inequity (i.e., a user). Then, using a microprocessor as the key component of the design, teams will employ human-centered design practices to engineer a solution. Teams must use at least one of the following microprocessors as the main component of their design: Arduino, Circuit Playground Express, and/or Micro:bit.
The MESA National Engineering Design Competition brings together the top middle and high school MESA teams from around the nation to showcase projects that address inequity using a human-centered design approach and integrating a microprocessor.
