Design Inspirations is taken from an Idea Sheet from RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching). The following STEMAZing Teacher Guide for Design Inspirations Virtual describes how to use this lesson virtually and provides links to prepared Google Slides options to cut and paste into your own presentation, Breakout Checklist, and links to Flippity wheels designed for this lesson. Everything you need to bring this creative lesson to life for your students in a virtual setting. This lesson can also be used as a flipped, asynchronous assignment.

From RAFT: Combine two unrelated ideas to inspire a creative new design! Engineers often use everyday objects to stimulate creative ideas. For example, an early ballpoint pen designer might have had a flash of inspiration while looking at a pencil!
