Visit ASEE @ NSTA’s STEM Forum July 27-29

harford county engineering elementary students

Havre de Grace, Md., teacher Alison Baranowski, depicted in a January 2012 ASEE Prism cover story, guides 4th grade designers through a test of “mortar” materials by asking questions versus “dish out content.”

Learn about infusing engineering throughout the elementary school day or take a tour of TeachEngineering’s free, online archive of teacher-tested engineering activities. These are just two of the presentations ASEE’s experienced educators will be making at NSTA’s annual STEM Forum in Denver July 27 to 29 as part of Year of Action on P-12 Engineering Education.

Check out our schedule, below.

And please stop by ASEE’s table in the exhibit hall to explore eGFI and other resources designed to help engage and inspire your STEM students.

Hope to see you there!
