Two years ago, Engineering is Elementary released the very first Engineering Adventures after school curriculum. After wide success, educators now have six complete units to choose from with their students. And the program continues to grow!
To date, the Engineering Adventures free educator guides have been downloaded nearly 14,000 times and hard bound copies of the guides have been made available through the Engineering is Elementary online store. Materials kits have also been made available to educators implementing the EA curriculum. This month, EA has also made a new tool available to afterschool educators in the form of an Educator Resources list for each unit. These lists feature articles, videos and books that relate back to the content of each unit and are easily downloadable.
Engineering Adventures after school curricula was extensively pilot tested and is designed on the premise that students who engage with these after school engineering materials develop more positive attitudes toward engineering and become more confident in their abilities as engineers.
The Museum of Science is the first science museum in the country with a comprehensive strategy and infrastructure to foster technological literacy in both science museums and schools nationwide. Its engineering curricula have reached an estimated 78,000 teachers and 6.5 million students (as of Oct 2014) nationwide.
