Approaches to integrating engineering and design into K-12 math and science classrooms. Students develop competencies by engaging in various forms of engineering and design, from small “design challenges” to more complex, semester-long engineering projects.
By the end of the course, participating teachers will: • Demonstrate competency in envisioning and implementing a variety of engineering and design integration techniques. • Identify opportunities to integrate engineering and design learning goals within one core unit normally taught during the academic year. • Engage in a sustained engineering and/or design task, from the initial stage of client contact to intermediate stages of brainstorming, prototyping, and refining to final product presentation.

Course Attribute

The course will immerse educators in various forms of engineering and design, from small “design challenges” to more complex, semester long engineering projects. Participants will create classroom-ready materials for their content area, reflecting varying degrees of engineering integration. Key topics include principles of engineering and design, alignment with math and science practices, approaches for integration, identifying and securing resources from local institutions. The course will meet at a local school physics or engineering laboratory and will involve ample opportunities for hands-on engineering and design work. Guest speakers with expertise in engineering and engineering education will participate in the course as consultants and guest speakers. A 4-week long sustained engineering project will be conducted in collaboration with a local non-profit organization.
