Use photos in Engineering Notebook

Hello! My students are wondering if they are allowed to take photos of the prototypes they build to use in the engineering notebook in place of sketches?



Please remember that when judges look at the notebook they are looking for the design process. In that process the team would typically sketch out their ideas before they are built. Teams may take pictures of their prototypes and place them in their notebooks as examples of the result of their ideas as they move through the iterative design process.
