New Educational Materials: Engineering in the Classroom
Are you concerned about how engineering fits into your K-12 science curriculum? The education team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has created a set of videos and supporting text for educators to illustrate how real-world engineering at NASA can be applied to the Next Generation Science Standards.
The new instructor guide has a video for each grade span and NGSS “Engineering, Technology, and the Application of Science” performance expectation. Each video shows how JPL applies the standard, offers a lesson plan or activity, and makes suggestions for making the standard relevant.
Check out the guide at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/teach/resources/engineering-in-the-classroom.php.
