Engineering the Future - Boston Museum of Science

Engineering the Future

Students should be learning how to solve problems using tools and ideas. They need to have a working knowledge of the Design Process. Just about the only curriculum that addresses this issue directly is the Engineering the Future project originating from the Museum of Science in Boston MA.

People who know how systems work and how to solve problems methodically make better citizens.

Here is a link to one of the segments of video about the curriculum. It was filmed in the Technology and Engineering classrooms at Duxbury High School.
