Engineers Month Giveaway #4


Get excited, STEM teachers – it’s time for our final eGFI Engineers Month Giveaway!

In honor of National Engineers Week, eGFI will be giving away free packs of colorful, laminated eGFI cards for your classroom.

And because we love engineering so much, we’re extending the celebration all month and will be giving away one pack of our popular cards every week in February, 2011.

Here’s how it works: at the beginning of each week we’ll make a post just like this one, featuring a weekly question related to teaching engineering. All you have to do is answer the question in the comments below, and you will be automatically signed up for the drawing.

One entry per person per week please, and be sure to enter a valid email address. Each week’s winner will be chosen at random to receive one free pack of eGFI learning cards. Winners will be contacted shortly after the giveaway closes at 11:59pm EST the following Sunday.

Here’s this week’s question:

What will you be doing (or what have you done) to celebrate National Engineers Week (Feb. 20-26) in your classroom?

Haven’t thought of anything yet? Try using our free online magazine to introduce middle and high school students to the wonderful world of engineering.

Write your answers and suggestions in the comments before 11:59pm EST Sunday, February 27, 2011 to be automatically entered into our giveaway.

Good luck!

  1. Today I had an engineer come in to my kindergarten class to talk with the children about engineering. He read the Dr. Seuss book Oh the thinks you can think and had some hand cranks to make electricity to light a light bulb. We also have an engineering design challenge and competition. The children will work in teams to design and build a container to protect an egg when dropped.

  2. My third grade class will design hourglasses. They’ll test different materials, hole sizes, etc to get their team’s model to be the closest to 60 seconds.

  3. We’ll be having an egg drop. We found the lesson plan on this site. We start today! On Friday, we’ll let them drop. 🙂
