ECH 544 - Engineering for Early Learners and Elementary

This course is designed for students to understand and apply theoretical concepts of
engineering into early learning and elementary classrooms. This course addresses the
development of inquiry-based engineering curriculum in early childhood and elementary
settings. Rooted in constructivist approaches, this course incorporates topics of engineering
literacy, conceptual development, content areas, current research and curriculum development,
implementation and evaluation. By utilizing engineering concepts in early learning and
elementary curriculum (for example through makerspaces, design thinking, and robotics),
students will develop an understanding of integrating, assessing and evaluating engineering
into early and elementary learning.

This course is cross-listed with EDU 544. Students who have received credit for EDU 544 may not receive credit for this course.
