Guess what my students did in class today with engineering?
Yes I do! Today my students got to explore 3 different experiments involve high level engineering thought process but at a simpler level!
Engineering? Don't you teach 6th grade?
Whoa! That is so cool and crazy to think about. We definitely never did anything like that in 6th grade.
It's important because our world as engineering all around us and we don't start teaching our students about it now it will be to late. Plus it's good for the students to have a strong base on the simple concepts like science to help them develop skills to tackle the harder concepts later!
This is so cool! Why do you think this is so important to teach now?
Yeah it is! I learned all about it back in one of my classes at ISU. In that class we talked about how to integrate engineering and coding into the K-12 setting so our students are better prepared for jobs that don't even exist yet!
