Building Engineers in K-5 Classrooms

Bringing engineering and design skills into daily instruction allows ALL students to be leaders in the classroom.  Through this work, students from ALL backgrounds are able to envision themselves in STEM careers.
If we are to truly build toward the modern graduate that is able to collaborate with others to flexibly solve problems, we must start in kindergarten.  The Building Engineers in K-5 Classrooms initiative seeks to do exactly that across the state of North Carolina.​
Calling all STEM Teachers!


Do you teach STEM as a special/elective class in your elementary school (eg Art/Music/PE/STEM)?  Interested in connecting with others like you across the state?  

We are seeking out elementary STEM teachers across the state in an effort to begin connecting more deeply, sharing resources and ideas, and gathering best practices so that other schools and school districts can envision how this type of position can positively impact ALL students!

Annual Conference

Come join us for an inspiring keynote address, incredibly engaging workshop sessions, hands-on opportunities with a wide variety of robotics and engineering materials, and the chance to see 300+ KIDS in ACTION!  


This two day conference will offer you ideas and strategies to immediately integrate design thinking, robotics and programming in your classroom.


Cohort Two now Starting!


We are thrilled to begin working with our next 8 LEA's as part of the initiative: 

Welcome Camden, Elizabeth City-Pasquotank, Harnett, Macon, Montgomery, Nash, Richmond, and Rockingham Counties!

In the coming weeks/months, they will be working on intentional plans to spread high-quality STEM throughout all of their K-5 schools, with a focus on the STEM pathways/careers they want to ensure ALL students have access to!


Thanks for submitting!
