Not entirely clear on what engineering is and how to teach it to PK-12 students? Here is your chance to learn the basic engineering principles that can be implemented at every grade level, from one of the foremost educators of engineering.
LinkEngineering's first video conversation is with Cary Sneider who just received the Robert H. Carleton Award for National Leadership in the Field of Science Education, NSTA's highest and most prestigious award.
Cary is currently Associate Research Professor at Portland State University in Portland, OR, where he teaches courses in research methodology for teachers in a Master of Science Teaching (MST) degree program. Cary is the Chair of the LinkEngineering Committee and also serves as a Consultant on STEM Education for the Noyce Foundation, the Stephen D. Bechtel Jr. Foundation, and on several advisory boards. He is also a Writing Team Leader for the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards.)
Cary is the editor of a 2015 three-volume set, The Go-To Guide for Engineering Curricula (PK-5, 6-8, 9-12). He has a deep knowledge of engineering and how it can and should be implemented in PK-12 education, plus he has worked extensively in training educators to meet this challenge.
