Tomato Landers describes one girl’s attempt to design a device to protect a tomato from breaking when dropped from a tall building.
The girl conceptualizes the design, tests the lander, evaluates the results, and redesigns. Readers follow the girl’s lessons learned as she incorporates the results of each test into a new and improved design.
This book models the design process and teaches students that learning from what does not work is a critical part of what engineers do.
