This is one of the best resources for adding Engineering to any K-12 classroom. Even if you don’t think you know much about engineering, you will be surprised. You know a lot more about engineering than you think you do. Everything created or made is “built” and is the product of the engineering design process. All too often S, T and M are considered to be separate independent subjects, whereas engineering is the application of all of them.
There is something here for everyone. There are numerous filters to help narrow down the choices. Pick a topic, a grade level or a time limit. You can even search by curriculum standard. It is as easy as that.
TeachEngineering is a digital library comprised of standards-aligned engineering curricula for K-12 educators to make applied science and math come alive through engineering design.
Educators have FREE access to our ever-growing collection of activities, lessons, units, maker challenges, sprinkles, and living labs. Many generous sponsors and partners have helped to establish, develop and promote this collection to help make teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) easy and accessible for K-12 educators everywhere.
A standards-aligned, classroom tested digital collection.
University engineering faculty, graduate students and K-12 teachers across the nation developed and classroom tested the contents of the TeachEngineering collection, which showcases engineering in everyday life as the context for student learning. Specific contributions by individual authors are recognized at the end of every lesson and activity. The collection aligns with state and/or national science, mathematics and technology educational standards, and uses engineering as the vehicle to integrate science and mathematics concepts for K-12 students.
The University of Colorado Boulder and Oregon State University continue to apply rigorous standards to the publishing process and enhance user features, while creating systems infrastructure to optimize for the growing content, and user base, of the library.
