Constructive curriculum

The Engineering is Elementary Seed Leadership Project, funded by the Museum of Science, Boston (MoS) and led by Dr. Heidi Carlone, is a partnership between UNCG, Guilford County Schools, and Chatham County Schools. Last summer, fourth- and fifth-grade teachers engaged in professional development to learn about Engineering is Elementary (EiE), a curriculum by the MoS that engages elementary children in a wide range of engineering tasks, with real-world challenges and authentic integration with mathematics, science, literacy, and social studies. The teachers, mostly from existing Title 1 PDS schools for our elementary education program, implemented an EiE unit in the Fall 2013, and Carlone and her research team studied the implementation.
