Early Engineering Education

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/14/ed...tzdcis3l/egnRQ

That article was sent to the engineers at work today. I think it is good to see engineering ideas taught early in education.

I just wanted to share the article. I'll post up a real response to it later on.

Re: Early Engineering Education

I wonder if there is a way to contact the school district and try to find out how they set up their cirriculum. I would love to try and bring things like this to our elementary schools. I think it's great they're starting so early.

Re: Early Engineering Education

"Engineering is not a requirement in most states. (New Jersey is an exception: the state standards mandate some exposure to engineering by second grade.) "

Sweet. I actually did not know this. NJ stepping up their game just a bit.

I would recommend contacting the people at Engineering is Elementary since they seem to be the creators of the curriculum.
