Many schools teach engineering in early grades

This is encouraging!

All 300 students at Clara E. Coleman Elementary School are learning the A B C’s of engineering this year, even those who cannot yet spell e-n-g-i-n-e-e-r-i-n-g. The high-performing Glen Rock school district, about 22 miles northwest of Manhattan, now teaches 10 to 15 hours of engineering each year to every student in kindergarten through fifth grade, as part of a $100,000 redesign of the science curriculum.

Oh, and don’t forget if you’re a teacher email us and we have discounts for classroom orders.

  1. My little sister is going to a brand new charter school next year, which includes a Free iPad and Engineering classes. Wish I had that kind of stuff when I was 8th grade 🙁
