TeachEngineering Purpose

To become a national platform for user-generated K-12 engineering science and design curricula. Exploiting TeachEngineering’s inquiry-based lessons and hands-on activities, teachers 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

TeachEngineering Features

All 50 states; international ITEEA

National (McREL, AAAS, NSES, NCTM)

  • Standards-aligned 
  • Dynamic, ongoing cross-alignment
  • Organized by:
    • Hands-on activities
    • Lessons
    • Multi-week curricular units
  • Flexible search engine

teachengineering usage history
TeachEngineering Usage History
  • During2010, received 1.5M hits from 489,805 different users
  • Usage tracks to the K-12 academic year
  • During the first half of this academic year, usage averaged 64,289 unique users per month (up 29%)
  • Teachers provide feedback  continual improvement
  • Recognized by NSDL in 2010 for top quality (of 121 collections)
the teacher buzz
The teacher buzz…
  • “I work with a number of high schools on a project-based pre-engineering course. Several of the teachers have used the TeachEngineering materials and found them to be very good.”
  • —E.R., university distance learning director, Cincinnati, OH
  • “We are using TE curricula as “one strategy to engage K-12 students around engineering as a ‘hook’ to getting them into taking the math and science needed for our ever-growing technology-dependent jobs in the Mobile area.” – S.P., education foundation program director, Mobile, AL
  • “…this is the third year that I have used your site... I have found it very useful. I have been spreading the word as much as possible. I am of the belief of why reinvent the wheel and this is why I use your site. Thank you again.” — S.G., grade 5 teacher, Truth or Consequences, NM
why would i want to publish in te
Why would I want to publish in TE?
  • National (and beyond) dissemination of your work
  • Continual standards realignment
  • Expanding features across collection
    • Adding ITEEA standards now
    • Just added NAE Changing the Conversation messaging
  • Continual backbone maintenance
  • Join the 34 other engineering colleges creating something great for K-12 educators & learners
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 your own internal reviews prior to TE submission to improve your success in the review process
  • Keep your RET PIs and teachers in the loop
  • Agree to allow others to freely use your lessons and activities for educational purposes
  • Your program is recognized at the top of published documents

Authoring guidance documents

  • Tips & suggestions
  • Reviewer rubrics
  • Templates
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
slide11

TE Submission Portal

  • Upload your files
  • Track through review and publishing stages
review and publication process
Review and Publication Process
  • Submit documents to TeachEngineeringin 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
