TeachEngineering Purpose

To become a national platform for user-generated K-12 engineering science and design curricula. Inquiry-based lessons and hands-on activities enable teachers to make the creativity of engineering – and its relevance to the lives of youth – come alive.

  • TeachEngineering contents:
  • 57 curricular units
  • 348 lessons
  • 599 hands-on activities
  • From 19 institutions
  • …and growing monthly

why would you want to publish in te
Why would you want to publish in TE?
  • National (and beyond) dissemination of your work to large teacher base for broader impact
  • Join the 34 other engineering colleges creating something great for K-12 educators and learners
  • Quality recognition and control
  • Continual standards realignment
  • Expanding features across collection
    • ITEEA standards
    • NAE Changing the Conversation messaging
  • Continual backbone maintenance
engineering categories
Engineering Categories
  • Goal: To accommodate differences in how programs introduce engineering to K-12 learners
  • Meet one of three Engineering Categories:
    • Category 1: Relating science or math concept(s) to engineering
    • Category 2: Engineering analysis or partial design
    • Category 3: Complete engineering design process
  • Indicated by a 3-dot system
how do i publish
How do I publish?
  • Create and classroom-test your K-12 engineering curricula

~ must be original work ~

  • Format your material into the TE Word templates
    • Flexible to incorporate different teaching styles within common core requirements  results in standardized TE “look-n-feel”
  • Conduct an internal review prior to TE submission to improve your success in the review process
  • Agree to allow others to freely use your lessons and activities for educational purposes

Authoring guidance documents
  • Tips & suggestions
  • Reviewer rubrics
  • Templates
review and publication process
Review and Publication Process
  • Submit documents in Word templates
  • Editor looks at submissions to make sure they are complete and ready for review
  • Documents sent to reviewers (like a journal)
    • K-12 Content Review – Teacher uses rubric to ensure quality, readability and usability by teachers
    • Engineering Review – Engineer or upper-level engineering student uses rubric to evaluate technical content and determine engineering category
  • TE provides a final edit of the document and converts it from Word to the website format
