2023 Ed+gineering Summer Workshop

On Tuesday August 1st, 35 local elementary teachers attended the Ed+gineering Summer Workshop to explore strategies for integrating engineering into elementary classroom instruction. They learned about the importance of considering empathy in their design and implementation of engineering problems and solutions, and the need for diversity within the engineering profession. Participants were lead by Dr. Christine Cunningham and Dr. Katie Bateman from the Museum of Science located in Boston, Massachusetts. Teachers discussed the engineering design principals and why students engagement in engineering is so important. They were then separated into groups by grade-level to engage in lessons designed for their students and standards. The day ended with an opportunity for teachers to share out what they had learned and describe how they will structure their classrooms to teach engineering in the future.
