Three short videos created for the Engineering is Elementary curriculum project called Engineering Everywhere (EE) have been recognized with Telly Awards for 2014. The “Engineering Everywhere Special Reports,” which use engaging, documentary-style reporting to introduce engineering design challenges that highlight each unit, won awards in the Telly category  “Education – for Academic Use.”

An afterschool curriculum, EE is designed for middle school-aged youth and was developed with support from the New York philanthropy i2 Camp. The centerpiece of each unit is a hands-on, real-world design challenge, for example engineering a process for making ice cream, or developing a strategy for reducing stormwater runoff in a city.

Telly Awards honor the nation’s best film and video productions, including groundbreaking online video and outstanding local, regional, & cable TV productions. The judging body is comprised of top industry professionals.

Field Work Media, a Boston-area production company headed by video producer Michelle Mizner, received the award. “FieldWork did a fantastic job,” says EiE curriculum director Melissa Higgins. “These videos add so much to our units and provide a compelling context for the engineering challenges.”

“The EE videos were fun to put together,” Mizner said. “I’m so pleased to have contributed these resources to such a well-designed a curriculum with national reach.”

All Engineering Everywhere Special Reports can be viewed on the EE project website.

 

Engineering is Elementary and Engineering Everywhere are projects of the National Center for Technological Literacy® at the Museum of Science, Boston.
