How Engineering Helps Students in Every Subject
Engineering is not just a pathway to 21st-century jobs. Studying the subject builds confidence and character, lets students practice resilient responses to failure, and inspires a passion for learning. Children who learn the Engineering Design Process at an early age learn to use those skills across subject areas from ELA to social studies to math. This hands-on panel will look deeper into how and why this happens. The panel will livestream into a classroom working on an engineering project.
