K12 Engineering Scholars

NSF Awards: 1542228

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8

Opportunities for STEM careers abound, but too few of our students are finding their way to these career pathways. The K12 Engineering Scholars program provides teachers with the knowledge and resources to inspire engineering ability, interest, and aspiration in their students. 

The program begins with a six- week summer experience, during which teacher participants:

  • Collaborate on a vision to use real-world engineering and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to enhance their current curriculum and enrich student outcomes;
  • Are immersed in cutting-edge engineering research;
  • Develop curriculum adaptations to engage and inspire their students;
  • Design makerspaces to support student learning on their home campuses; and
  • Create relationships with engineering and education colleagues across the region

Teachers and project leads share what they learned and how the experience is impacting their teaching.
