Get free, open-ended, hands-on lessons and activities to stimulate your students’ interest in math and science through engineering.

As explained at the website, “engineers create what has not been – they make things that have never existed before.” The free K-12 engineering curricula at this website integrates math, science, and technology through exploration of the “built world” around us so that it’s relevant to the lives of young people.

The idea here is to encourage students to pose questions about “why things work” and then gain skills and use their imaginations to create innovations that improve the world for everyone.

When you get to the website you’ll see the featured “Most Popular.” Above it you can: 

  • Browse Curricular Units – These theme-based learning experiences are composed of multiple lessons designed to take place over several weeks in a classroom environment. There are units on bridges, cells, energy, floaters and sinkers, marine mapping, natural disasters, rockets, simple machines, weather and atmosphere, and more. They can be tweaked for the homeschool learning environment.
  • Browse Activities – In our opinion, this is the place to start because the stand-alone, hands-on, fun experiments are sure to engage your kids’ interest and may springboard you to further learning. There are over 1,000 activities (that include a materials list and instructions) covering a range of possibilities such as the exploration of acids and bases, designing a bicycle helmet, learning about kidney filtering, investigating Ohm’s Law, playing “Rock Jeopardy,” making Yogurt Cup Speakers and more.
  • Browse Lessons – Get over 500 different lessons that meet content standards on topics that include Air Pressure, Ampere’s Law, Art in Engineering, Machines, Magnetic Fields, Rivers, Rocks, Paper Airplanes, Water, and much more.

All of the lessons and activities include the estimated time it takes and the approximate cost for the materials.

TeachEngineering is a terrific resource so bookmark it to return often!
