This project is developing a curricula and an implementation model that has provided in increased ability and fostered the pursuit of higher education in the field of engineering. The curricula and model is resulting in middle and high school students applying critical math, science, and technology knowledge while they plan, design, test, revise, and implement engineering activities.
The value added product, as a result of this project, is standards-based units of study at the 7-12 level and an articulated pathway for learners to successfully transition to two-year engineering technician programs. The units of study are assembled into two separate curricula for the middle and high school levels and a model implementation plan.
