K-5 Children's Engineering
The K-5 Children’s Engineering Academy was a hands-on interactive course designed for teachers in grades K-5. Participants learned to use design, engineering and technology instructional resources to enhance children’s attainment of the Virginia Standards of Learning in science, mathematics, social studies/history and language arts. The course engaged participants in critical thinking and problem solving experiences that contribute to a child’s ability to retain content in the Standards of Learning. Participates discovered how easy it is to integrate Children’s Engineering into the existing curriculum as a strategy for increasing children’s academic success.
