Online Training for Teaching Hands-On Engineering Activities with NASA and DESIGN SQUAD

NASA and DESIGN SQUAD® have developed an online workshop for educators and afterschool leaders to build their skills and confidence in guiding kids through engineering activities like those found in the On the Moon Educator Guide.

Completing this self-guided online workshop will allow educators to gain insight and strategies for strengthening critical-thinking skills and exciting their students about using the design process to arrive at solutions.

In this self-guided workshop, participants will:

— Experience the design process in action. Learn and reflect on ways to use the design process to tap into students’ problem-solving skills and creativity.
— Watch an engineering activity. See how easy it is to integrate the design process into hands-on activities in the classroom.
— Get resources. Discover a variety of engineering activities from NASA and DESIGN SQUAD® for students in grades K-12.
