• In Content Literacy, we have been introducing students to engineering challenges in the classroom.  If you ever watched children at play, you know they're fascinated with building things and with taking things apart to see how they work.  In other words, children are natural born engineers.  Engineering calls for children to apply what they know about science and math.  It helps enhance their learning.  Hands-on, project-based learning is the essence of engineering.  As groups of students work together to answer questions like "How wide should the base of my tower by?" or "What materials do I need to create this parachute?"  Classroom engineering activities often require students to work in teams where they must collaborate and communicate effectively.   

    Educationally Yours,
