Engineering is Elementary® (EiE®) is a project of the National Center for Technological Literacy® (NCTL®) at the Museum of Science, Boston. We address America’s pressing need for effective STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education through three platforms:

  • Curriculum development and dissemination
  • Professional development (PD) for teachers and teacher educators
  • Educational research  and evaluation

EiE serves children and educators in grades K8 with research-based, teacher-tested curriculum materials for schools and out-of-school time programs. We also help teachers build skills and confidence in teaching engineering and technology in our professional development workshops. And through conference papers and publications, we share the knowledge we’ve gained with the national community of educational researchers.

About the National Center for Technological Literacy: Recognizing the importance of technological literacy and the need for trained scientists and engineers, former Museum president and director Ioannis Miaoulis launched the NCTL in 2004 to enhance knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math for people of all ages. The Museum advocates for STEM education in schools and museums nationwide, creating educational products and resources for teachers, students, and the general public.
