Description of Activity: With strong literacy integration, Engineering is Elementary (EiE) facilitates integrated STEM learning for your students. No prior experience with Engineering, CS or STEM expected. Comprehensive, turn-key STEM engineering design processes, place-based and local “problems,” diverse realistic characters, as well as career connections are all woven into EiE’s curricula. EiE supports the New PA STEELS Academic Standards. 

“EiE®, the award-winning curricula division of the Museum of Science, Boston, develops research-based, classroom-tested programs that empower children to become lifelong STEM learners and passionate problem solvers. Since 2003, we’ve designed our PreK-8 curricula to encourage all children, including those from underrepresented groups, to see themselves as engineers. Our flexible print, online and blended hands-on programs bring engineering, science and computer science together to prepare today’s students for a fast-paced, global, technology-savvy future.”


Join us for a free overview session where we will explore strong, guided and supportive online resources for teachers, digital and hardcopy storybooks, and materials/supply kits. Free sample resources provided. In-person, hybrid and remote learning options are available. EiE is worth the time to take a good, long look.
