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.
