For Teaching & Learning
Integrative-STEM Model – The CORE
Do We Teach engineering or Engineering?
engineering–little “e” – used as a verb
to teach all students to think or learn to engineer or use engineering concepts
Engineering–big “E” – used as a noun
prepare students to be Engineers – career oriented
K-2 Design Process
3-5 Design Process
6-12 Design Process
Emphasizing “Big Ideas”
Ideas we want students to “get inside of” and retain after they’ve forgotten many of the details.

The year 2037 seems very far away, but it is never too early to plan ahead. Your challenge is to plan improvements to the infrastructure of a community, so that it is prepared to meet the needs of the people who live there in the year 2037. You may choose your own community or any town or city that you can research. You will need to know or learn about the community’s current infrastructure. Your solution must be based on what you have learned about community infrastructure. You also should brainstorm unique ideas that may seem crazy now, but may be the solutions of the future! After you have used the technological design process to develop a solution, your team will present it to the class.
