Guest Editorial: Engineering Education in the K-12 Classroom
Abstract: Greg Pearson, senior program officer for the National Academy of Engineering, writes about engineering education making its way into U.S. K-12 classrooms. He says its presence in these classes is an important phenomenon. It’s important not because of the number of students impacted—which is still small compared to other school subjects—but because of the implications of engineering education for the future of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
