EDU 544 - Engineering for Early Learners and Elementary

This course is designed for students to understand and apply theoretical concepts of engineering in 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 maker spaces, 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 ECH 544 . Students who have received credit for ECH 544 may not receive credit for this course.
