Computer Science Essentials Wins Best of STEM!

We’re thrilled to announce that our Computer Science Essentials™ curriculum was selected as  Educator’s Pick Best of STEM Award in the Trailblazer: Inspiring Computational Thinking category! “STEM educators praise [our] curricular materials for providing teachers of young learners with activities that develop computational thinking.” 

Our Computer Science Essentials™ program takes computer science instruction beyond coding, fostering the computational thinking and digital learning skills students need to thrive in a fast-paced, tech-savvy future.

“EiE’s supplemental curriculum focused on Engineering and Computer Science Essentials is filling a huge need in STEM at the elementary level,” Dr Lance Brand, Educator Judge, said of our units. “Their learning units are well-designed, creative, have hands-on coding components and help students learn to structure their habits of mind.”

Meet Our First Online PD Scholarship Winners!

The EiE Professional Development Team works tirelessly to find innovative ways to make high-quality, affordable professional development accessible to educators all over the world. That’s why we’ve been so excited to roll out our new Online PD experiences. Over the past year, we’ve conducted webinars about habits of mind and engineering in out-of-school time, and we’ve had some amazing discussions with educators around the country about STEM integration and ELA connections. In March, we mentioned our brand new Online PD Scholarship on the blog, and we were blown away by the response! From the huge volume of applications, the Online PD team has pulled together an amazing team of dedicated educators to help us pilot test the very first online PD workshop series.
