A comprehensive, K-12 solution for Integrative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (I-STEM). 
Engineering byDesign™ (EbD)™ is built on the belief that the ingenuity of children is untapped, unrealized potential that, when properly motivated, will lead to the next generation of technologists, innovators, designers, and engineers.
Why EbD?
Using Constructivist models, students participating in the program learn concepts and principles in an authentic problem-/project-based environment. Through an integrative STEM environment, EbD™ uses all four STEM content areas, as well as English Language Arts, to hlep students understand the complexities of tomorrow.
