Description: Teaching engineering from kindergarten through 12th grade could improve student achievement in science and mathematics, introduce young people to the excitement of design and problem solving, and increase the US' technological literacy, according to a new report from the National Academy of Engineering and the National Research Council. The report, Engineering in K-12 Education, took two years to complete and includes a detailed assessment of 15 existing engineering curricula for grades K-12. The K-12 report sees engineering as a way to integrate science, math, and technology education. It shows students how to apply mathematics and scientific principles to solve practical problems.
