Educators will learn how to:

--Engage their students in the engineering skills enabling them to use math and science to solve problems and learn skills key to innovation

--Access free engineering programs

--Navigate the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and make them work for them

--Use best practices and cutting-edge ideas to teach engineering

--Advocate effectively on the importance of engineering standards, curricula, and professional development to parents, industry, and federal and state officials

--Win STEM grant funding for their engineering projects

Top engineering education experts from these organizations are participating:
