The EiE team will be out in full force to launch our newest early childhood curricula Wee Engineer and EiE for Kindergarten! We’re excited to share what we've learned about early childhood engineering. We love meeting educators, answering burning questions,and discovering the amazing things happening in classrooms or districts across the country. If you’re attending #naeycAC, check out below what we have in store!

Attend Our Panel Session

Designing an engineering curriculum for young children
  • Thursday, November 15, 2018
  • 10:00 - 11:30 AM
  • Washington Convention Center, Room 209C
  • Presenters: Marisa Garcia and Marlene Guay

How can you capitalize upon children’s proclivities to build things and explore how they work to develop children’s ideas about engineering? In this session, we examine what age-appropriate engineering looks like for very young children. Participants will engage in activities to construct an understanding of what “technology” and “engineering” are. Then we will watch short video clips of preschool and kindergarten children engaged in engineering activities and identify general principles important for engineering with early learners. Participants will come away with an appreciation of how engineering can foster children’s creative thinking and persistence and an engineering activity to try with young learners.
