Engineering Education

Background

​Most grade school students do not understand what engineering really entails. A lot of students will not even hear about engineering until they are almost done with high school and those who do know about it are discouraged by the math and science. The Engineering Education team is focused on integrating engineering into the grade school curriculum and to show students that engineering is much more than math and science.

Project Timeline

  • Further integrate engineering into the classroom-2017

  • Establish a working model and expand into more schools-2017

Accomplishments

The Engineering Education project team has worked with Charlottesville schools on incorporating Lego Mindstorm kits into their curriculum. The team has also talked with four different classes at two different elementary schools. Engineering Education recently participated in the annual KidVention Science Fair

Our mission is to inspire students to be proactive and contextually-aware Engineers who empower communities to attain their basic human needs in a sustainable manner.
