NEW TOOL: How can students’ everyday experiences support science learning through engineering design?

Posted on November 15, 2016

Students should engage in engineering design projects each year as part of the new vision for K-12 science education. Students often bring relevant design-related experiences and expertise to those instructional moments. This tool lays out an instructional approach for leveraging that design knowledge as students learn and apply science principles. This is a crucial part of the cultural learning process since it recognizes and connects to the educational assets and interests that learners bring to the classroom.
