PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.

ACTIVE LEARNING

Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.

TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED LEARNING

Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.

TOTAL SUPPORT

We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.

Introduction

Through Engineering the Future’s™ (EtF) practical real-world connections, students have an opportunity to see how science, mathematics, and engineering are part of their everyday world. Engineering the Future™ was  created by the Museum of Science, Boston through its National Center for Technological Literacy®.

Engineering the Future™ students learn like engineers.
Students take on the role of engineers and apply the engineering design process to define and solve problems by inventing and improving products, processes, and systems. They begin to understand the relationships among STEM concepts and practices.

Engineering the Future™ students learn how technology affects society.
Students develop an understanding of how advances in technology affect human society and how human society determines which new technologies will be developed.

Engineering the Future™ students learn and apply energy concepts
The concept of energy is fundamental to all of the sciences, but it is also challenging to learn. To build a useful mental model of energy, students learn to apply the same energy principles to thermal, fluid, and electrical systems.
