NYIT Hosts Engineering by Design Teacher Training in Old Westbury

Engineering by Design

NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences has recently supported the CTE Technical Assistance Center of NY by hosting Engineering By Design teacher training in it’s facilities at the Old Westbury campus. Engineering by Design (EbD) is a standards-based pre-engineering program for children in grades K-12. It was developed by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) to deliver technological literacy in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) contexts, and can be implemented using existing technology infrastructure in public schools.

The Engineering by Design program is an technology-integrative educational model used by schools who are developing themes in STEM and IT, and are seeking to increase all students' achievement in technology, science, mathematics, and English through authentic, hands-on learning. EbD students will be prepared with the knowledge and abilities that will help them to become informed, successful citizens in tune with the technologically advanced 21st century world in which we live.

The goals of the EbD program are:

  • Provide a standards-based K-12 program that ensures that all students are technologically literate.
  • Provide opportunities for all students without regard to gender or ethnic origin.
  • Provide clear standards and expectations for increasing student achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
  • Provide leadership and support that will produce continuous improvement and innovation in the program.
  • Restore America's status as the leader in innovation.
  • Provide a program that constructs learning from a very early age and culminates in a capstone experience that leads students to become the next generation of engineers, technologists, innovators, and designers.

The NYIT-hosted training session took place from June 30-July 3, 2014 in Harry Schure Hall rooms 211 and 212. Additional information about the NYIT EbD training is available on the Oneida-Boces website. The Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES is the lead agency in the Engineering by Design™ Consortium for New York state. In 2012, we brought this exciting, pre-engineering program to school districts in New York state.
