Virtual Introduction to Engineering
Our introductory workshop is designed to provide secondary educators with a foundational understanding of the ADI instructional model in Engineering. We provide a hands-on, curriculum-driven professional learning experience that helps participants develop the knowledge and experience they need to feel confident using or supporting the use of ADI-E in classrooms.
What is Argument-Driven Engineering?
- Argument-Driven Inquiry in Engineering challenges students to use core science ideas, engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts to solve a design challenge.
- Students work within the criteria and constraints given to design and build prototypes, test and refine their designs, and write a design report about their findings and the engineering design process; all while participating in collaborative groups, argumentation sessions, and peer review and feedback stages.
- ADI-E features STEM Design Challenges that are easily integrated into science, engineering, and STEM courses. These STEM Challenges can also be a foundational element in after-school programs or summer STEM camps.
What is included in the workshop?
- Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the ADI Engineering instructional model by participating in all eight stages of an actual ADI-E STEM Design Challenge from start to finish.
- The workshop will model a design challenge for middle school using a method that is transferable to elementary and high school settings.
- Attendees will receive a few pre-publication design challenges that they can take back and try in their own classrooms.
