For the second year in a row, a short video created by Engineering is Elementary® (EiE®) was an audience favorite at an online video showcase hosted by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The EiE video, titled “Every Kid Can Engineer,” was recognized with "Public Choice" award, as well as a “Presenters’ Choice” award from the other educational researchers participating in the showcase.

The Engineering is Elementary (EiE) curriculum is celebrating a meaningful landmark. The award-winning engineering curriculum for students in grades 1 – 5 has now reached 10 million students.

EiE has come a long way since 2004, when a team of curriculum developers at the Museum of Science, Boston invited eight Boston-area teachers to pilot-test a novel curriculum module with their students. During that first test, a total of 200 children got a chance to try their hand at engineering a sturdy bridge, or making sticky, strong mortar for a stone wall.
