Student engineering

In this edWebinar, Nia Keith, Director of Professional Development for EiE at the Museum of Science, Boston, discusses research, tips and strategies for how engineering:

  • Helps children develop important 21st century skills like critical thinking, collaborating, and persevering through failure
  • Engages students in ways that align with their learning style so all students—including English learners, those students who have not flourished with more traditional instruction, and those who receive special education services—can thrive in the classroom
  • Supports ongoing reflection in young problem solvers
  • Promotes social-emotional learning, language acquisition, executive functioning and fine and gross motor skills development

You’ll learn ways to engage children in conversations that help to expand their curiosity and teach them that it’s OK to fail and try again. This recorded session will be of particular benefit to preK providers, and preK-3 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
