|Abstract:||There is a need to teach core engineering concepts to elementary grade students. We present a novel approach using `deficient model' i.e. a sub-optimal solution, to help students attend to design optimization and associated tradeoffs required to improve an engineering system. The nascent stage of this research prevents us from making conclusions. However, the framework highlights how distinct science education approaches can be synthesized and applied in the context of engineering education.|
