--Engineering Encounters: What is the E in STEM?
Can children Birth to Age 6 Engineer? What does engineering look like for K-12 students? We will identify ways children engineer everyday and the processes they use to engineer.
A child's world is all about play. They design their adventures, games, and story lines. Using design as a way to create, invent, plan, improve, test.
Foster childrens problem solving skills and develop habits of inquiry.
Engineering Event at Carnegie Science Center, Mark Your Calendar!
Inspire your students to explore a career in engineering as they engage in hands-on activities, interact with professionals in the field and check out presentations at more than 50 event tables and more! Event is February 19-20, 2016. Registration is now open! Contact Carnegie Science Center (www.carnegiesciencecenter.org) for more information!
The MIT Glass Lab
Brings middle school students to campus to participate in the CSME Program, to introduce students to Materials Science and learn about engineering in new ways. Taking the art and meeting the science, glassblowing allows for studies in a number of principles including heat transfer, fluid mechanics, vicosity and strain energy.
Materials Science & Engineering:
Revolutionizing Engineering for the Future!
Join Readiness Learning Associates at NSTA Philadelphia, November 12-14, 2015 for Revolutionary Science & Engineering! This years professional development strands include Technology: Teaching Revolutionary Science in the Digital Age and Integrating Literacy Strategies PreK-12 Science Instruction.
Robotics is a great way to engage students to think like an engineer! Have students design and build an 'end effector' in order to use it for a specific task. Readiness Learning Associates spent two days working with school principals and classroom teachers in learning about robotics!

Join us at The Childrens Center at Caltech, Saturday, May 16, 2015, 9AM-Noon, for Engineering Encounters in Early Childhood, presented by Carrie Lynne Draper, STEM Director. Educators from around the country will learn how to engage our youngest learners in the Engineering Design Process; how we can promote Higher Order Thinking & Problem Solving Skills and will then tour the Center. Cost: $60.00. For more details: Call The Children's Center at Caltech, 626.395.6860 or email RLA at [email protected]
Readiness Learning Associates enjoys providing STEM curriculum support & teacher training throughout the school year. We highly recommend viewing this YouTube link to see the great ENGINEERING learning that is happening at Stratford Schools, a Readiness Learning Associates client.
