study of engineering has not only become common in K-12
schools, it's now mandatory in national standards.
engineers are professional Innovators and problem
solvers. What better way to help students think more creatively, and give them vocational advantage, than to have experiences thinking like an engineer.
Grade school classrooms bustling with the sounds of
little fingers plowing through boxes of building
materials...the goal - design a solution to some
problem. Example - create a structure that can
support excessive amounts of weight and stand against
torrential winds. The challenge, you only get one
sheet of paper, some tooth picks and a few mini
Middle and high school classrooms with 3D printers,
robots, lasers and flying drones that support robust
curriculum designed to make the brain sweat and
The data is in - core
curriculum mixed with engineering/innovation studies
significantly helps students make connections between
their "core" classes (math, science, etc.) and the real
world. Students become more attached to how math
and science is the discovery of the world around them,
and how innovators use these discoveries to solve
We live in a designed world full of intentionality and
the fingerprints of a Creator, and our planet is filled
with the raw materials from which to continue the
Ah, what a great time to be alive! A time of
discovery and creative resources like never before.
Imagine all the
ingredients of a fine gourmet meal remaining too long in
the cupboard. The earth waits for "master chefs"
(Innovators) to assemble its resources into new devices
For over 100 years hands-on learning has been an
indispensible part of a balanced education (like a
balanced meal...a little protein some veggies, etc.).
It was once called Manual Arts, Industrial Arts, or
Vocational Studies. These days it's titled,
Technology and Engineering Education. One of its
primary goals - help train our future Innovators.
The study of engineering is not only for those students
who have these natural gifts, it's for all students!

experience of engineering a part of your child's
academic experience today. And save 25%!
