Family Engineering: A Professional Development Workshop
Date and TimeTuesday, July 23, 2013
8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
- RMSC, Mackinac Hall, GVSU Allendale Campus
Family Engineering is a new program developed with support from the National Science Foundation to actively engage parents and their children in fun, hands-on engineering activities and events. Modeled after the popular Family Math and Family Science programs, Family Engineering will introduce parents and elementary-aged children to the exciting world of engineering. Engineering and engineering practices are new areas of emphasis in the Next Generation Science Standards, which need to be incorporated into K-12 classrooms.
Through this workshop, teachers and administrators will learn how to engage elementary children & parents in engineering through fun, hands-on activities and events for the whole family! These are fun, hands-on engineering activities and events that help elementary and middle school students and parents learn about what engineers do and the role engineering plays in all aspects of our lives are also appropriate for classroom use. Family Engineering also raises awareness of the many career opportunities in engineering. Visit Family Engineering at: http://www.familyengineering.org/ to learn about this new national program!
