EDCI 55950 Engineering Design Practicum (Graduate)

Engineering and technology design has gained considerable traction in many K-12 schools. In this course, we will examine principles of engineering design and technology as well as where and how engineering and technology design best fits in a K-12 integrated STEM curriculum. Course participants will engage in authentic engineering and technology design experiences. Course participants will also design, develop, and deliver integrated lessons that help K-12 students develop the knowledge, skills, and practices of engineering and technology design.

Prerequisite: None

Note: In order to earn this certificate, teachers should begin in Summer I 2023 and continue with subsequent courses as they are offered from STEM Teach through Purdue University.  If they cannot take a course in Summer I 2023, they may begin the sequence of courses in Summer II 2023.  

Due to prerequisites, teachers will not be eligible to begin in Fall 2023 or Winter/Spring 2024 if they do not enroll in a Summer I or Summer II 2023 course.
