Across the U.S., and specifically in Washington State, there is a strong initiative to introduce more Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning materials in the public school curriculum. While STEM is a great step toward addressing the need for more science-ready graduates, many teachers consider engineering unfamiliar, overwhelming to learn and difficult to incorporate into their existing curriculum.
The EduKit is a concise, approachable and actionable tool that empowers teachers to both understand and teach engineering. The Engineering EduKit takes an overwhelming and complex subject and makes it accessible, adaptable and empowering to teachers by offering clear guidance, examples and templates. It gives them the freedom to teach in their own style, while adhering to specific teaching standards.
