New Science and Children Column Call for Papers Engineering Encounters

Article excerpt

We are seeking column submissions that present classroom-tested, novel, and engaging lessons for preK-5 students. They should include all of the components necessary for an engineering investigation to be completed and assessed, from design to implementation. Be sure to bring the voices of students and the teacher to the manuscript. In other words, focus on application of instruction that provides a peek into the classroom.

We are also interested in submissions that provide background information for the teacher that will support the teacher's ability to construct his or her own engineering lessons. This might include suggestions as to where more information can be found concerning high-quality lessons, strategies for structuring lessons, resources that support teaching and learning, and strategies for use in evaluating lessons and materials.

The Blueprint

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) integrate engineering into science education by raising engineering design to the level of scientific inquiry at all levels, from kindergarten to grade 12. The NGSS clearly shift our teaching to include technology and engineering. The NGSS explain engineering in this way: We use the term "engineering" in a very broad sense to mean any engagement in a systematic practice of design to achieve solutions to particular human problems. …
