STEM By EbD State

The STEM/CTL has developed the Premier Standards-based Integrative STEM (I-STEM) Curriculum Model designed to be flexible, affordable, and accountable. The Engineering byDesign™ (EbD) curriculum was initially developed to address the need for a standards-based curriculum using Standards for Technological Literacy, and through a dynamic process, now addresses the needs for a standards-based Integrative STEM curriculum. Key attributes are:

  • Develops broad Technological Literacy for every student using the 6E Learning byDESIGN™ Instructional Model;
  • Based on Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core State Standards (CCSS-Mathematics/English-Language Arts) and the National Academy of Engineering's (NAE) Engineering Habits of Mind;
  • Based on Constructivist theory, EbD™ is problem/project based within the context of the Grand Challenges for Engineering (NAE).
