Children's Engineering:
A Handbook for Elementary Educators

Written by elementary teachers, this guide helps you include basic engineering concepts in the elementary classroom. The handbook describes the benefits of teaching engineering, suggests how to implement engineering for younger students, and details the design process. Includes detailed teacher procedures, reproducible student pages, and national standards addressed.

Children's Engineering:
Beyond the Basics

A follow-up to Children’s Engineering: A Handbook for Elementary Educators, this guide helps elementary educators recognize the technology already in their curriculum and introduces Standards for Technological Literacy (ITEEA 2000/2002/2007) and K-5 Benchmarks. Plus, it includes 12 ready-to-use activities that can tie into other studies.

Children's Engineering: Technology Design Loop Poster

A great compliment to the Children’s Engineering books above, this laminated poster brings the five-step Technology Design Loop used in both books into full view for your students.

Preparing the students of today to become productive citizens of the future requires our educational system to promote life-long learners who are able to work together to solve realistic problems and develop a basic understanding of the natural and humanly modified world around them.

Information presented in a familiar and mind-engaging context leads to greater understanding and retention, as compared to memorization of facts in isolation. Research indicates that retention is greatest when students are actively engaged, put their knowledge into immediate practice, and become “teachers” of other students. Children’s Engineering activities directly address these issues.
