The goal of the NSF sponsored three-year PIEE project is to raise student interest in engineering and standardized test scores by assisting with the implementation of engineering concepts into the Worcester Public Schools curriculum. This IQP represents the second year of the program, focusing on supporting the sixth-grade teachers in the classroom. Teacher feedback confirms that student interest in science and engineering indeed increased. Additional analysis is required to determine if an increase in MCAS test scores has occurred.
