When You’ve Got a Good Thing, Stick With It: 10 Years of EiE

Kids have been engineering hand pollinators at Barkley Bridge since 2007!

Last year, the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) selected the Engineering is Elementary curriculum as part an ambitious program to improve STEM education statewide. So now many Alabama elementary teachers are getting their first exposure to classroom engineering.

For New York Students, Summer in the City includes Hands-on Engineering

What did you do on your summer vacation? For some of the New York City students who will go back to school later this week, the answer is, “engineering!”

For the first time ever, hands-on engineering was part of the city’s summer school programs. Thousands of students boosted their STEM skills (and their understanding of what it’s like to be an engineer) by learning with Engineering is Elementary’s out-of-school-time (OST) curricula Engineering Adventures and Engineering Everywhere.

We’re gratified to know that the Engineering is Elementary curriculum played a part in the change.
