This workshop is intended to introduce Elementary teachers to some of the philosophy and ideas behind the new engineering and technology program being introduced to RPS this year. This will include interactive use of Autodesk Inventor Cad software, discussion
of the focus of communication skills, both in terms of visual and written language, and the opportunity for students to learn through active projects using the design process. Attendees will get the opportunity to experience some of the concepts of engineering design through hands-on activities. An underlying agenda of this workshop is to prompt discussion of potential pathways for future introduction of some of these concepts into the elementary classroom.
