Jessica - This is much better than the first draft. Your intro is really engaging and should make readers want to find out the specific you provide. You've also done a great job integrating your observations of students "turning sketches into reality" and "translating knowledge into a practical application." I also like the learn from errors affordance of video you added. The "Wooden Models of Simple Machines" section is really helpful detail for prospective users of this plan, too. Nice job!
