This paper describes an instructional module for teaching engineering design to 11th and 12th grade GT Engineering students in the context of learning about Swarm / Multi Robot Systems. The module includes research analysis, discussion, and activities. It is STEM extensive and also supports a county-wide reading initiative policy. The research analysis component focuses on work by C. Ronald Kube and Eric Bonabeau, titled "Cooperative Transport of Ants and Robots." The discussion component analyzes the Biomimic inspiration of ants and bees, robot mechanics, and programing. The activity component comes after the research paper analysis and begins with students determining a method for reproducing the project using available materials. Students will then apply the engineering design process in designing, building, programming, testing evaluating and modifying a prototype. The module will be used in two GT Engineering Tech classes.
