Lyle, Welcome to LinkEngineering! What are you hoping to receive from or share with the LinkEngineering community? What resources does JPL have to help Los Angeles area schools teach engineering?

    Hi Jackie, thanks! The JPL Education Office provides resources and professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers in the greater Los Angeles area. Below are a few links that I plan to share in the resources section as well (I was having some trouble accessing the share feature when I first signed up).
    * JPL education site - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu
    * JPL science and engineering lessons (NGSS and Common Core aligned) - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/teach/
    * JPL Engineering in the classroom - a feature that breaks down each engineering standard in each grade band. It shows how engineers engage in that standard at JPL and links to a lesson connected to the standard and the JPL tie-in. - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/teach/resources/engineering-in-the-classroom.php
    * JPL Educator Resource Center - materials and resources available for teachers - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/educator-resource-center/
    * Calendar of events - JPL public lectures and teacher workshops will be posted here - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/events/
    * Teachable Moments blog - highlights recent news and makes classroom connections for teachers - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/news/column/teachable-moments/
