The Building Engineers in K-5 Classrooms initiative utilizes an opt-in cohort model for LEAs to participate more deeply in the work. Each cohort LEA organizes a small team of 6-10 passionate educators that work to create and implement a 2-year plan that focuses on LOCAL goals, opportunities, and impacts. The goals of this 2-year plan are:
Spread high-quality STEM practices throughout grades K-5 to improve teacher practice and ignite student interest in available STEM pathways.
Intentionally convert student interest in STEM careers to their engagement in available local STEM pathways in grades 6-12+.
We are very pleased to be partnering with the following LEAs,
who represent our initial cohort (Cohort One):
Ashe County Schools
Edenton Chowan Schools
Guilford County Schools
Hoke County Schools
Lee County Schools
Robeson County Schools
Winston-Salem Forsyth Schools
Small Team from Edenton learning more about the engineering design process!
