Abstract

This project studied the influence of an engineering-based curriculum on second-grade students over the course of one year. During this time, we implemented lessons that met the requirements set forth by the Massachusetts Educational Frameworks for public schools and the requirements of the Worcester Public Schools Benchmarks. Although we found that students involved with the project did come out of it with a better understanding of engineering, our influence did not necessarily increase their interest in the field.
