Abstract

We worked with Massachusetts Audubon Wachusett Meadow wildlife sanctuary and Clinton elementary school to advance engineering skills in current Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curricula. In order to improve engineering in Clinton’s STEM curriculum we created design challenges to implement into their current material. We tested our design challenges out on Clinton’s 3rd grade class and at a program at Mass. Audubon. In order for proper application we created a teacher's editions of each challenge so educators would feel more comfortable and increase their exposure to engineering materials. With this more advanced engineering curriculum the students will develop skills that will set them up for a brighter future.
