Come experience quality engineering lessons inspired by
externships with engineers that require students to acquire and use elements of
disciplinary core ideas (DCIs) from physical, life, or Earth and space sciences
together with elements of DCIs from engineering design to solve
1. Experience how to create an authentic need to integrate science and engineering ideas to solve an authentic problem, making the interdependence of science and engineering explicit; 2. Explore examples of engineering lessons that provide access for all students that are grounded in sensemaking; and 3. Discuss what it means to be career ready and the skills that are inherent in three-dimensional learning as espoused by NGSS and the K–12 Framework for Science Education.
