Overview: Teachers will master the engineering design process and understand how it can be applied to their science teaching. Participants will identify engineering concepts that are already part of their lessons and discover opportunities to tie in new engineering concepts into existing and new lessons. Teachers will explore PBS LearningMedia, a free, online service that contains thousands of media-rich STEM resources aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and specifically support the engineering practices emphasized in the standards. Participants will undertake an engineering design challenge, which will inform the planning of an engineering lesson for their classroom. Teachers will also attend 90-minute follow-up workshop, TBA, to present their lessons and learn from each other’s experiences. All workshops qualify for CTLE hours.
