Ready to start engineering with your students? Did you know there is a digital library of STEM curriculum with over 1,600 free STEM activities and standards aligned lesson plans searchable by age, subject and time commitment? Join some of the team from TeachEngineering to learn about their extensive, free, online collection of STEM lessons for Pk-12 students. Topics covered will include how to get started, how to choose a lesson plan, the importance of standards alignment, and what makes a “meaningful engineering experience.”
TeachEngineering is a searchable, web-based digital library collection comprised of standards-based engineering curricula for use by K-12 educators to make applied science and math come alive through engineering design in K-12 settings. The TeachEngineering collection provides educators with *free* access to a growing curricular resource of activities, lessons, units, maker challenges, and sprinkles for use in informal education settings. All TeachEngineering materials have been developed by university engineering departments in partnership with classroom teachers. The library is funded through the National Science Foundation and administered by The University of Colorado Boulder with web development by the Oregon State University. Once you have tried TeachEngineering curriculum, you can share your experience on LinkEngineering.
