Integrating Engineering and LIteracy

NSF Awards: 1020243

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8

Inspired by kids and grounded in research, Novel Engineering is an innovative approach to integrate engineering and literacy in elementary and middle school.

Students use classroom literature—stories, novels, and expository texts- as basis for engineering design challenges to:

-Identify engineering problems
-Impose constraints by using details from the text
-Design functional, realistic solutions for characters
-Engage in the Engineering Design Process while reinforcing their literacy skills

With strong connects to Common Core and NGSS, Novel Engineering provides a package of resources through workshops and online materials that help teachers easily integrate Novel Engineering projects into their existing classroom. Resources are dynamic and focus on supporting student thinking and teacher responsiveness.
