those that are immovable,
those that are movable,
and those that move.”

Very useful to learn about engaging your students

The TeachEngineering digital library provides teacher-tested, standards-based engineering content for K-12 teachers to use in science and math classrooms. Engineering lessons connect real-world experiences with curricular content already taught in K-12 classrooms. Mapped to educational content standards, TeachEngineering's comprehensive curricula are hands-on, inexpensive, and relevant to children's daily lives.

infed (the informal education homepage) was established in 1995 as an open, independent and not-for-profit site.

Our aim is to provide a space for people to explore the theory and practice of informal education and social action learning. We want to encourage educators and animators to develop ways of working and being that foster association, conversation and relationship.

ThinkQuest inspires students to think, connect, create, and share. Students work in teams to build innovative and educational websites to share with the world. Along the way, they learn research, writing, teamwork, and technology skills and compete for exciting prizes.  Good resource for science, technology, engineering and mathematics information.

Teachers' Domain is an online educational service with two related components — collections and courses — that help teachers enhance their students' learning experiences and advance their own teaching skills. The Teachers' Domain collections include classroom-ready multimedia resources for use in lessons or independent study, and the Teachers Domain Professional Development courses utilize many of the same resources along with videos of exemplary classroom practice.  The collections provide learning experiences that no textbook can. This ever-expanding library currently includes collections on:

New York Times Education web site.

Engineering Pathway is a portal to high-quality teaching and learning resources in applied science and math, engineering, computer science/information technology and engineering technology, for use by K-12 and university educators and students. 

Our passion is engineering and our goal is to provide resources that will help teachers, parents, faculty and practicing engineers to inspire more of today's students to follow an engineering path as their way to understand and improve our world.



Engineering is Elementary is creating curricular materials that integrate engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science lessons. To support classroom implementation, the project also offers professional development workshops for elementary school teachers and curriculum coordinators to help them acquire knowledge of and comfort with engineering concepts and skills

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), founded in 1950, is a not-for-profit educational and service organization. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in those aspirations and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders. For more information about the Society please call (312) 596-5223.

Tufts -The core purpose of the CEEO is to improve education through engineering. In doing so, we hope to accomplish four goals: http://ceeo.tufts.edu/component/option,com_frontpage/Itemid,1/

Increase students' excitement for learning math and science

-    Give students skills that will make learning more enjoyable in all subjects

-    Increase technological literacy for all

-    Increase the awareness of the importance of engineering for society



http://eduscapes.com/  Annette Lamb and Larry Johnson have designed this website to share a love of learning with others. As authors and educators, we work with teachers, parents, and children around the world to effectively integrate technology into teaching and learning environments.

http://www.jets.org/  JETS—Opening the World of Engineering and Technology to Students, Parents, and Educators
Providing Real-World Engineering Insight and Challenges for High School Students...JETS works to increase interest and awareness of engineering and technology-based careers — with student competitions, assessment tools, career guidance resources, an e-newsletter, and more — as well as resource materials for parents and counselors. JETS Programs excite high school students about careers in engineering and related technical fields and help them understand the critical role engineers play in the world around us.
This website is a free resource for educators and administrators who are looking to integrate engineering concepts and activities into prek through twelfth grade classrooms. The activities available on the site are linked to the new Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Frameworks. Many of the standards in these frameworks are closely related to the nationally recommended standards for technological literacy by the International Technology Education Association (ITEA.)
http://www.ciese.org/eofnj/  New Jersey State effort to add engineering
Engineering is more than a discipline or a career. It's a way of thinking. An approach to solving problems and inventing new and better ways of doing things. Engineers draw upon science and mathematics, communication and interpersonal skills - and their own ingenuity - to make the world a better place.  (More)
