LET’S BREAK IT DOWN!

Engineers always work to improve solutions to problems.

invention of the incandescent light bulb vs a florescent light bulb

The original light bulb was a great solution to it being dark at night, but the light bulb got very hot. Engineers then made better light bulbs that do not get hot and use less energy.

A drawing can help engineers think about their design before they start building it. They might get new ideas while drawing and they can think about which steps to do first.
