One way to provide powerful problem-solving experiences in science, mathematics, and technology is to engage students in novel problems that require them to assess a situation and then apply conceptual and procedural knowledge to its solution. Engineering offers an effective context for these problem situations. However, most practicing teachers do not have the knowledge or experience to create meaningful, engineering-based learning experiences. This paper will provide details about a program to enhance the ability of preservice and inservice teachers to make these engineering experiences possible for their future or current K-12 students. Providing teachers the training necessary to make use ...
