The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is pleased to announce the 2017 ASEE PreK-12 Engineering Education Workshop scheduled for Saturday, June 24, 2017, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.

The theme for this year’s workshop is "Inspiring the Next Generation to Take Flight with PreK-12 Engineering Education."

This day-long program for teachers and engineering educators from Ohio and across the country will provide an energizing, interactive overview of successful engineering education instruction for PreK-12 learners that — among many other attributes — emphasizes how engineering can be used as the central component of integrated STEM projects. Attendees will: learn engaging hands-on lessons and interactive activities to share with students, receive takeaway materials ready for use in the classroom, and have opportunities to network with other engineering educators.

NEW to the 2017 workshop is the Counselor's Connection, a track for PreK-12 academic advising/counseling professionals. The ASEE recognizes the critical role and impact counseling professionals have on the education of students about engineering professions and as partners with teachers.

We are pleased to invite local counselors to participate in dedicated sessions specializing in engineering education. This event will allow attendees to learn strategies to support positive learning experiences and increase understanding of careers in engineering.

We will offer two tracks at the PreK-12 Workshop this year. The first track will be beneficial to educators, as it focuses on PreK-12 student learning experiences that feature hands-on activities. The second track will be beneficial for academic advising/counseling professionals, as it focuses on engineering professions and career options

  • For the student learning experiences track, the individual PreK-12 workshops should prominently:
    • feature hands-on classroom activities
    • provide take-home or classroom-ready materials, in addition to written materials
    • engage participants in interactive exercises
    • explicitly feature strategies, activities and/or curricula that use engineering in an Integrated STEM activity or project
    • include technical content, use of the engineering design process, and ideas for effective teaching/pedagogy
    • address diversity and how to attract/retain students in STEM
    • be linked to national standards (e.g., the ITEEA Technological Literacy Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics).
  • For the Counselor's Connection track which features engineering professions and career options, the individual workshops should prominently:
    • include information about careers in engineering
    • address diversity and how to attract/retain students in STEM

Once again we are featuring a PreK-12 Curriculum Showcase that features original ideas and innovative models that show how educators integrate engineering and STEM.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS:

  • Proposals must be submitted for 60 or 90 minute sessions
  • In particular, we are seeking proposals addressing elementary/primary grades along with the secondary level.
  • Note that presenters must register and pay the registration fee to support their workshop attendance and audio/video costs.
  • To submit a proposal, log in at www.asee.org. We will not accept or review any proposals submitted via email.

CONFERENCE REGISTRATION

  • Early online registration – for attendees and presenters – opens November 14, 2016 and closes May 30, 2107.
  • After May 30, registration must be completed onsite at non-discounted rate.
  • For more information, please visit the PreK-12 Workshop website
