Design Step 4: Engineering Analysis
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Engineering analysis distinguishes true engineering design from "tinkering." In this activity, students are guided through an example engineering analysis scenario for a scooter. Then they perform a similar analysis on the design solutions they brainstormed in the previous activity in this unit. At activity conclusion, students should be able to defend one most-promising possible solution to their design challenge. (Note: Conduct this activity in the context of a design project that students are working on; this activity is Step 4 in a series of six that guide students through the engineering design loop.)

This exercise is intended to engage students to design, model, visualize and evaluate the theoretical three dimensional image of a protein whose structure has not yet been determined. The phylogenetic analysis in Biology Workbench of paralogs and orthologs to alphafetoprotein reveals more divergent sequences within active site domains of related proteins without biological activity and greater conservation of the alphafetoprotein active domain between different species.
