Engineering is Elementary (EiE) is a rigorously researched, classroom-tested curriculum that increases students’ interest in and confidence about engineering. EiE is designed to encourage all children to envision themselves as potential engineers.
EiE’s units present fun, engaging engineering challenges that allow students to apply science knowledge in meaningful ways. Each unit is introduced by a storybook about a child who solves a problem through engineering. Set in locations around the world, the storybooks integrate literacy and social studies – and provide context and meaning for the hands-on activities that follow.
