Join Texas A&M and the American Society for Engineering Education for the inaugural offering of an innovative, immersive summer professional learning program designed to help you integrate the “E” into your STEM classes.

Participants will use the engineering design process to build a flying machine under certain constraints. They then they will collaborate to develop a lesson series based on that experience at an appropriate level for their classes. While the workshop is aimed at middle and high school teachers, elementary educators will find the experience useful and rewarding.

Accommodations at the spacious White Creek Apartments (photo, right) feature outdoor grills – extending the opportunities for teachers to engage with and learn from each other in a beautiful setting.

Two online follow-up sessions will help support implementation and update participants on the project’s processes, failures, and eventual successes.
