Innovation and creativity come from the unique perspectives of a diverse staff. We value your perspective.


SUMMARY STATEMENT:

This position is part of a dynamic, creative team that creates and delivers best of class professional development for a national elementary engineering curriculum. The position is a blend of leading teams in the delivery and development of workshops, activities and resources for teachers and managing significant external relationships for the EiE program to facilitate wider adoption.

 

ENGINEERING IS ELEMENTARY:

The Engineering is Elementary (EiE) project aims to foster engineering and technological literacy among children. EiE is creating a research-based, standard driven, and classroom-tested curriculum that integrates engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science topics. EiE lessons not only promote K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning, but also connect with literacy and social studies. Storybooks featuring children from a variety of cultures and backgrounds introduce students to an engineering problem. Students are then challenged to solve a problem similar to that faced by the storybook character. Through a hands-on engineering design challenge, students work in teams to apply their knowledge of science and mathematics; use their inquiry and problem-solving skills; and tap their creativity as they design, create, and improve possible solutions. In the end, students realize that everyone can engineer!


RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Deliver professional development workshops up to 3 – 4 per month both locally and nationally
  • Manage 10-15 significant external relationships to facilitate adoption of EiE
