The customized workshop is part of the SIUE STEM Center’s Teacher Academy series. Design It! Engineering includes three different projects with hands-on opportunities that highlight engineering design and the creativity inherent in engineering projects.

“This workshop encourages approaching engineering from a learner-driven perspective that is both engaging and effective,” explained Colin Wilson, manager of the SIUE STEM Resource Center. “Lessons will cover different engineering topics from trebuchets to siphons. Educators are encouraged to explore and design their own projects.”

The workshop costs $20 and lasts six hours, including a lunch hour. It will focus on middle and high school education, both formal and informal situations. Participating educators can receive continuing professional development units (CPDUs) as part of the experience.
