Engineering: an introduction to teaching engineering in prep schools
The course will consider the value of teaching engineering to Years 3 to 8, the principles that lie behind it and how to resource engineering in terms of time, space, materials and expertise. There will be hands-on sessions for delegates to experience the engineering approach. Lesson plans and teaching resources will be provided to take away for delegates to consider its introduction in their own schools. St Faith’s was the winner of the 2018 TES Award, ‘Strategic Initiative of the Year’, for the introduction of engineering and is the winner of the 2019 TES Award ‘Prep School of the Year’.
