PD Opportunity: Engineering Literacy Workshop

6 Jun 2022 2:25 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

June 14th 5-6:30 pm in the Educator Resource Center at Museum of Science, Boston, MA.

Our target audience is teachers of grades 6-12 and community college professors. This 90-minute workshop at the Museum of Science will review the TEL Engineering Literacy Framework and dive into exploring Technology and Society. We will provide certificates of attendance, free parking, and light snacks.

Definitions from the TEL framework:

Technology is any modification of the natural or designed world done to fulfill human needs or desires.

Engineering is a systematic and often iterative approach to designing objects, processes, and systems to meet human needs and wants.

Technology and engineering literacy is the capacity to use, understand, and evaluate technology as well as to understand technological principles and strategies needed to develop solutions and achieve goals. For purposes of this framework, it comprises three areas: Technol¬≠ogy and Society, Design and Systems, and Information and Communication Technology.

This workshop is being offered by Partners Aligned To Heighten broad participation in STEM (PATHS). PATHS is a new coalition formed by two minority serving institutions, UMASS Boston and Bunker Hill Community College. We are academia, non-profits, governments, and industry. With funding from NASA, we are collectively working to increase diversity in engineering in Massachusetts. We support students and their mentors to explore STEM activities, persist through the barriers by finding a path that works for them, and change the status quo.
