Introduction to Teaching Engineering
June 29 - July 2
9am - 3pm
This engaging four-day workshop equips elementary teachers with the knowledge, experiences, and skills to effectively integrate principles of engineering into their classrooms, libraries, and makerspaces and meet their students’ specific educational needs. In this workshop, educators will move between discussions about pedagogy and the practical aspects of teaching engineering to actually working with each other to practice doing hands-on engineering activities themselves. Additionally, workshop participants have the special opportunity to experience engineering education happening in real time as they observe and work with students in a concurrently running CEEO summer elementary-level workshop all week long.
Teachers will observe a variety of engineering projects across many disciplines and learn about the fundamental aspects of what makes a good engineering project. As a capstone, teachers are supported as they develop their own tailor-made engineering project which can be immediately implemented in their own classrooms. Additionally, at the conclusion of the workshop teachers will leave equipped with a collection of ready-to-teach activities (demonstrated by Tufts CEEO instructors) which they can confidently implement themselves.
This workshop will be held on the Tufts University Somerville/Medford Campus
