The National Academy of Engineering and National Research Council held a symposium to coincide with the release their report “Engineering in K-12 Education: Understanding the Status and Improving the Prospects.” Participants spoke about the recommendations and implementation of programs to include more engineering topics in primary math and science classes. 

The report assessed the value of developing and implementing engineering curricula for kindergarten through grade 12. It also describes what engineering concepts children are able to understand and at what age, and provides an analysis of more than a dozen engineering curriculum projects.  close
