Feedback form is now closed.
Join us to get hands-on with some engineering design challenges! All students benefit from bringing these creative problem-solving challenges into the classroom. Come discuss why this is important for their present and future. We will share how to use simple materials for engineering challenges. Activities shared have been used in a 7th/8th grade science classroom with a population of students with learning disabilities. We will design and build together during this session. Accessible resources, including Novel Engineering (from Tufts University), will be shared in sample photos from our classroom so you feel empowered to bring engineering back to your own classroom!
