Why is the E so important?

Engineering offers a tangible link between the STM components and their applications. Implementing engineering practices as part of a teaching and learning program offers teachers the opportunity to explore new exciting and engaging activities and students a new way to solve problems.

This workshop will focus on what this might look like in a classroom. Teachers will explore the engineering design process through prepared exemplar challenges. The tasks and resources aim to give teachers the experience and support they need to plan and deliver STEM focussed lessons that highlight the design thinking required in engineering.
