Engineering's Six Steps To share the impact of the Wolf Trap Residency Program in their classroom with parents, the teacher and teaching artist created a video that showcases children’s engagement with Engineering’s Six Steps. While the video may look like a performance, the real emphasis during the residency was the process and instilling habits of mind that will help the children to approach problem solving creatively in the future (problem solving using the creative process, where failure is only failure if you don’t learn from it and try again). Teaching Artist Jeanne Wall also created a song with a dance called “The Six Step Shuffle” to help the children learn the six steps.
