In the last ten years, K-12 schools have added numerous programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to engage students in hands-on activities and promote technical careers.Passionate teachers have lead this effort, often with little support from their schools.
In 2014, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were released and California is one of the first states to commit to implementing them. California teachers are in the process of modifying their science classes to comply with NGSS which formalizes STEM in curriculum.
For the first time in history, engineering will be taught in the classroom! Unfortunately, very few teachers have experience with engineering or even have a realistic idea of what engineers do. They need help from engineers. So the question at hand is ... how can Ventura County and Santa Barbara County engineering societies work together to maximize the impact of the members on K-12 engineering?
We hope to see you there!
