STEM PD in DC: Intro to Engineering Design

  • What: Introduction to Engineering Design in the K-12 Classroom, presented by Knowles Science Teaching Foundation and ASEE
  • When: June 3, 2017
  • Where: George Washington University, Science & Engineering Hall, 800 22nd St. NW, Washington, D.C.
  • Cost: $250 (until May 7, then $300)

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?

Find out at this day-long introduction to engineering design offered by the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation and the American Society for Engine
ering Education. 

Participants 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
  • 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.
