AN INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN IN THE PRE-K–12 CLASSROOM

JUNE 3, 2017

Engineering design challenges provide engaging and purposeful contexts that can enrich students’ math and science learning, but what is engineering design, and how can teachers use it to teach math and science? The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation and The American Society for Engineering Education are pleased to offer a daylong introduction to engineering design, where you’ll learn how to use engineering to enrich your students’ math or science learning, as called for in the Next Generation Science Standards.

This workshop is appropriate for all PK–12 teachers interested in learning about engineering design processes. While the workshop may be especially useful for middle- and high-school teachers, all materials may be adapted for younger audiences, and anyone interested in using real-world problems is welcome to attend.

In the workshop, you will:

  • complete a teacher-facilitator-developed, classroom-tested engineering design challenge for teaching math, science, and engineering skills; •
  • actively co-construct an understanding of the engineering design process; and
  • gather teacher and student materials to help you begin planning engineering design for your math or science class.
