Early childhood learning in Classroom through PreK-8 Engineering and Computer Science curricula at EiE

Our PreK – 8 engineering and computer science curricula and supplemental learning materials are developed with rigorous, evidence-based design principles and are tested in classrooms to ensure that the learning is effective and engaging.  

Three attributes set EiE apart:

  • Evidence-Based Design

    • All our curricula are developed and built using a core set of design principles that have been proven effective through vigorous testing.
    • A five-year study concluded that our curricula improve learning outcomes for all learners, regardless of demographics. EiE curricula meets ESSA Tier 1!
  • Focus on Equity

    • EiE was founded with the explicit mission of engaging and empowering students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields.  
    • EiE takes a socio-constructivist approach where learning happens best through collaboration and where all student voices are heard. EiE was developed using inclusive design principles where: 
      - Learning is set in a real-world context.
      - Design challenges are authentic to engineering practices.
      - Lessons scaffold student work. 

  • Integrated Social-Emotional Learning

    • Our units are designed specifically to provide opportunities for practice with social-emotional skills – for example, 
      - by empathizing with and seeking to help fictional characters,  
      - working in groups to develop collaborative solutions, and  
      - embracing failure as an opportunity to learn and grow.
