Engineering design challenges can provide engaging ways to enrich students’ math and science learning, but what is engineering design and how can teachers incorporate it in their classrooms, as the Next Generation Science Standards require?
- 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
- Gather teacher and student materials to help you begin planning engineering design for your math or science class
While the workshop may be especially useful for middle and high school teachers, all materials can be adapted for younger students as well as for instructors interested in incorporating real-world problems in their classes.
