Integrating the E in STEM: Bringing engineering into your K-12 classroom

Download the Final Program

Saturday, October 15 2016: This special co-located event sponsored by the Frontiers in Education (FIE’16) Conference and the American Society of Engineering Educators. This event consists of three sets of peer-reviewed and tested K-12 STEM workshops, speakers and a technical session at the FIE-16 conference. The workshops are aimed at K-12 educators & administrators to provide attendees with tools to easily integrate the materials into their curricula. These workshops will each be ~1 ½ hours in length, and provide hands-on, best-practice activities to bring engineering content into PK-12 classrooms.  

To be held at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel, these workshop sessions are results-oriented, interactive, engaging, fun hands-on, classroom-ready. Each session will include at least one Elementary, Middle, or High-School applicable workshop. The program includes attend one of the technical sessions on research in K-12 STEM education at the Frontiers in Education (FIE2016) conference at the Bayfront Convention Center.
