All of our products, whether professional development service or curriculum, are focused on enabling your teachers to implement Engineering Design practices and activities in their classrooms. Our workshops are highly interactive and are centered on the goal of having participants implement at least one new resource or idea in their classrooms as soon as possible. In our experience, that first step is the hardest part of change. Every teacher who has heard of an exciting new approach at a workshop or conference has had the experience of walking into the reality of day-to-day classroom life and the unintended return to the same way of doing things. We provide easy to implement resources and suggestions to help teachers customize them to their needs. And we are always available for follow-up advice and support.
Our curriculum modules are developed through an extensive piloting and feedback process. The end result is a series of comprehensive, standards-based Engineering Design projects developed to meets the needs of diverse 21st century learners. All of our projects utilize our copyrighted Engineering Notebook, which has been developed to provide an intuitive format for documenting and managing the Engineering Design Process.
Our co- and extra-curricular offerings center on our innovative “Engineering a Better World” STEM fair program. Contact us to learn more about this program and the over 30 schools involved in it. Our workshops, Teacher’s Guide, and Student Handbook provide the training, resources, and support that you need to transform the traditional science fair experience into a collaborative, creative, and authentic learning opportunity for middle school students.
