A series of integrative STEM design briefs, created for the elementary, middle, and high school levels, by ITEEA in support of Engineers Week 2015
From the Introduction:
Center for Teaching and Learning has created a series of design briefs for use by technology and engineering educators at the elementary, middle, and high school levels that appear on the following pages.
STEM CTL is ITEEA's curriculum and professional development arm, established to advance technological literacy and to demonstrate how technology and engineering bring STEM to life!
The elementary school design brief focuses on "Home For All seasons", a unit that contains a variety of integrated lessons to capture and hold the attention of kindergartners.
The middle school design brief discusses "Invention and Innovation", a course allows students to explore the Engineering Design Process through hands-on problem-solving activities.
The high school design brief looks at how students using the Engineering byDesign™ (EbD™) curriculum are equipped with an understanding of the engineering design process as well as a wealth of content based on historical context that helps to build the grit necessary to increase the number of students pursuing careers in engineering.
