Engineering Learning Trajectories: What They Are and Why They Matter

According to EdWeek, STEM jobs are predicted to grow at a faster rate between 2014 and 2024 than jobs overall. With these stats, districts need STEM curricula that unlock important 21st century skills and open doors to a world of possibilities for their students. Engineering provides opportunities for schools and districts to do just that.

With sixty-five percent of scientists and graduate students surveyed reporting their interest in science began before middle school (it always existed or began in elementary school), it’s becoming more and more crucial to start engineering instruction early. Schools need to get kids into the engineering pipeline when they’re young, before it becomes an afterthought.

Engineering in Early Education: Sign Up for a Parent Webinar

Children are natural engineers — and encouraging their skills early is essential. It might seem intimidating, but engineering is simply using math and science — and creativity — to build technology that solves problems. Engineering gives very young kids that confidence they need to believe they can make a difference. How can parents engage their kids in engineering? What does age-appropriate engineering look like? EiE and Bright Horizons are partnering together to host a parent-friendly webinar, Engineering in Early Education, to answer those questions and more!
