As pre-university schools close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers are looking for options to transition their curriculums to home learning. TryEngineering has resources available to help teach engineering concepts remotely and engage students learning from home. Check out the following TryEngineering.org resources:
- Games: many fun online STEM games including cool applications where students can learn essential engineering skills like CAD (e.g. TinkerCad) & Coding (e.g. Scratch). We also recommend you try our game: What Kind of Engineer are You?
- Lesson Plans: over 130 hands-on engineering lessons- many with materials that can be found at home. Critical Load is a fun and easy lesson for all ages that only needs a deck of cards and coins. The Critical Load activity explores the concepts of structural engineering and how to measure the critical load, or the maximum weight a structure can bear.
- Meet an Engineer: be inspired by professionals and students who have made great impact. Check out some of the awesome engineering Nerd Girls (e.g. Paige Kassalen).
- Engineering Disciplines: explore the many different engineering disciplines. Download our FREE infographic that highlights exciting engineering careers that make a difference.
Get Tips from TryEngineering: Join TryEngineering for a free webinar titled, “Tips on Engineering eLearning for Pre-University Students.” Presenters Burt Dicht and Dawna Schultz will share their tips and advice on teaching engineering concepts at home.
