ProjectEngin’s STEM Fair Program will grow to include over 45 schools in the 2018-19 school year. This co-curricular middle school program is designed to as a more open-ended version of our EngineerGOOD curriculum. Student groups select a Sustainable Development Goal as the basis for their Engineering Design challenge and then develop prototype a small-scale solution for a region, town, or village that they have chosen. Your entire middle school faculty can be part of these real world challenges that involve all disciplines. The program consists of introductory workshops and ongoing offsite and onsite support tailored to meet your needs. Our 250-page Teacher’s Guide contains a variety of resources to support managing a wide range of student projects along with whole-class introduction and kickoff activities. The Student Handbook provides all of the resources that student teams need to develop, plan, and manage their projects. Many schools find that this program provides a “backdoor” way to include more Engineering Design and global competencies in their classrooms.

Middle School STEAM or Design-Based STEM Curriculum
The ability to think creatively and to innovate will be key to future career success. ProjectEngin will work with you to re-engineer your science curriculum for the 21st century. We employ a project-based approach supported by the “Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning” approach to scientific inquiry and by the Engineering Design Process. We are committed to creating an engaging learning experience and increasing real-world relevance in your classroom. We truly believe that the primary goal of middle school science should be to encourage students to enjoy science and engineering and to see the impact that STEM has in their lives.
Two of our most exciting middle school STEAM and design-based curriculum programs have been in use since 2015. Our life sciences based STEAM enrichment course, highlights biomimicry and bioengineering. Our complete three-year middle school NGSS curriculum is thematically-oriented and links science concepts with quarterly Engineering Design projects, providing authentic performance tasks that highlight all three dimensions of the standards.
