For many science teachers the integration of technology and engineering into the science curriculum will mean a new way of teaching, new concepts and skills for their students to learn, and new assessments that will measure their students’ progress and their own capabilities as teachers. The source of this concern is a publication by the National Research Council of a new blueprint for science education standards, appropriately titled A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Core Ideas and Crosscutting Concepts (NRC 2012). The Framework is currently severing as the blueprint for Next Generation Science Standards, aimed at replacing the current patchwork of state science standards with a common core, as has already been done in mathematics and English language arts. Since these documents raise engineering ...

Everyday Engineering is a collection of 14 previously published hands-on engineering activities from a regularly featured column in the National Science Teachers Association's (NSTA) middle-level journal, Science Scope. Each activity examines a simple, everyday object looking at its design and function. Within each activity, science content and engineering practices are integrated as well as mathematics when appropriate. Each activity is illustrated with color photography by Robert L. Simpson III, reprinted courtesy of NSTA from Everyday Engineering: Putting the E in STEM Teaching and Learning ...
