Limited Capacity filling up

The future of elementary and secondary education is increasingly incorporating engineering and technology into required curricula.  The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are the latest in this trend.  This will be a fun and informative session designed to help you incorporate engineering concepts into your classroom.  We will discuss what engineering is, how engineering affects your students’ lives, strategies for integrating engineering concepts into your classroom (even in history modules!), and dispel some of the myths surrounding engineering stereotypes.  You will learn about the engineering design process and how to incorporate it into your lessons, via a sample activity.  We will provide you with classroom connections to engineering as well as several engineering resources.  One of these resources available to you is the UNL Engineering Ambassadors Network, undergraduate engineering students who will come to your classroom and deliver an age appropriate engaging presentation paired with a hands-on activity.  Come hear about how you can bring engineering to life in your elementary or middle school classroom! (if nothing else, you might even leave with something you designed, to play with in the next session!).
