- Professional Development
EiE (Engineering is Elementary) collaborates with college faculty to introduce preservice teachers to engineering and technology.
To succeed in their chosen careers, elementary teachers need solid preparation in the subjects they will teach—and that includes engineering. EiE is working with faculty in the fields of science and education to develop strategies for integrating engineering into college courses for preservice teachers. This initiative, called Bridging Engineering, Science, and Technology for Elementary Educators (BEST) is supported by the National Science Foundation.
