Abstract: Uncertainty plays a crucial role in making engineering design decisions. It directly impacts both the design process and the final design output. It is important for learners to develop the skill of managing uncertainties effectively. However, there is a lack of research investigating how students manage uncertainties during a collaborative design process and how effective uncertainty management skills may be developed in the learners. In this paper, we present the results of a pilot study investigating how middle school students collaboratively manage uncertainties while solving an engineering design challenge. We also discuss issues related to the management strategies used and reflect on how these issues can be addressed using a computer-supported collaborative learning environment.
