Workshop Highlights:

At the completion of this course, teachers will be able to:

• Experience the engineering design process and develop a framework for your classroom
• Learn how to encourage engineering mindsets in students
• Discuss the differences between engineering design facilitation and traditional math and science instruction
• Discuss ethics in engineering with a professional engineer
• Prepare for [Pennsylvania's] implementation of engineering-integration instruction by designing and peer-teaching your own content-integrated engineering-design lessons
• Use at least one engineering design challenge in the service of teaching math or science

At the completion of this course, students will be able to:
• Identify aspects of the engineering design cycle in their engineering design challenge instruction
• Define problems in math and science using the engineering design problem definition process
• Report high favorability of math and science satisfaction on the TIMSS survey.


Endorsed by the American Society for Engineering Education, this year-long, professional development course offers 12 months of coaching and support for teachers aiming to integrate engineering design in their classrooms. Initiated by a week-long, in-person workshop facilitated by two teachers with engineering integration experience, this program will assist teachers in gaining the knowledge and confidence needed to implement engineering design challenges that inspire their students to apply math and science concepts to solve real-world problems.
