Robots that mimic cockroaches, working pinball machines, and more! Engineering Design in elementary classrooms can come alive when teachers focus on the Science and Engineering Practices with lesson design. In this active session, teachers engage in lessons that merge K-5 engineering with the Michigan Science Standards Disciplinary Core Ideas.

Teachers will leave armed with the ability to integrate phenomena-based science instruction around real-world problem solving into their classrooms.
