2018 Summer Graduate Course/Workshop

Children's Engineering: K-5 Strategies for Implementation

This hands-on interactive course is designed for teachers in grades K-5. Participants will learn to use design, engineering, and technology instructional resources to enhance children’s attainment of the Virginia Standards of Learning in science, mathematics, social studies/history and language arts. Emphasis will be placed on the Profile of a Virginia Graduate, including elementary school exploration of career clusters and career pathways.

The course will engage participants in critical thinking and problem solving experiences that contribute to a child’s ability to retain the content and apply the skills in the Standards of Learning.

Participates will discover how easy it is to integrate Children’s Engineering into the existing curriculum as a strategy for increasing children’s academic success. Teachers will take home product samples, design briefs, and ideas for enhancing their daily instruction. These resources will not be an add-on to the curriculum, but enhance the instructional program.
