The Youth Engineering Solutions (YES) program at the Museum of Science, Boston is currently seeking teachers of all experience levels in the U.S. to test new engineering curricula in their classrooms during the 2024-25 academic year! The units: Engineering Posture Alert Systems (Wearable Alert Systems) and Engineering Earthquake-Resistant Buildings.

Testers receive a $400 stipend, all materials needed to implement activities, and a professional learning orientation--in exchange for completing feedback forms after each lesson, participating in an interview, and coordinating the return of student notebooks.

More information about these hands-on design challenges can be found in the application (link below). Educators with questions or in need of more information (standards alignment, activity summaries, etc.) can email Dr. Katie Bateman.

The units are part of the middle school resources from Youth Engineering Solutions (YES). YES is the newest suite of curricula from the team behind the beloved and award-winning EiE® program at the Museum of Science.
