Teacher Workshops

Learn the fundamentals of engineering pedagogy, become familiar with the EiE curriculum, and increase confidence in engineering and technology instruction.

EiE Overview and Introductory Experiences

These sessions are designed to provide an overview of the EiE structure and philosophy shaping the curricular materials, to answer questions you may have about the curriculum and how it could be implemented in your classroom, school, and district, and to allow participants to explore the introductory engineering and technology activities.

3-Hour Session:

  • Experience and surface definitions of Technology and Engineering as presented by EiE
  • Review EiE curriculum structure, units, curriculum connections, and grade level appropriateness
  • Engage in a select activity from a sample EiE unit
  • Provide an opportunity for questions and concerns

Fee (3-Hour): $1,200/$1,000 Science House members (travel charges may apply)
Maximum Number of Participants: 30
Grade Level: Variable by recommended grade bands for EiE units and school needs

Everyone Engineers! Unit-Specific Training

These workshops are designed to introduce educators to the EiE program and its materials. The workshop will allow participants to explore the introductory engineering and technology activities. Participants will then begin exploring a specific EiE unit.
