McCarroll and Smith's presentation, entitled "Engineering Challenges and the Power of Analyzing Failure," shared their observations from a Buddy Science Challenge that Junior School students performed in January-March of this year. Included in the presentation was a recently published article from NSTA's Science & Children journal that gave teachers language to use with their students surrounding failure and how to help them positively respond to it.
