Teach Engineering


Standards-aligned engineering lessons and hands-on activities for use in science, engineering, and math classrooms. 

National Science Foundation

Engineering is behind many of the great achievements of the 20th century and making future innovations possible. This collection of lessons, activities, and web resources aims to help educators, students, and students' families learn more about engineering. Some of these resources come from the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). NSDL is the National Science Foundation's online library of resources for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education.

Montana Engineering Education Research Center 

The Montana Engineering Education Research Center (MEERC) was approved by the Montana Board of Regents in September of 2016.  The purpose of the MEERC is to Transform Engineering Education through interdisciplinary, empirical research on improving student success.  The overarching research thrusts that MEERC affiliates are interested in are:

  • Preparing engineering graduates to meet the grand challenges of the 21st century.
  • Broadening participation in the engineering workforce.
  • Improving learning efficiency.
  • Understanding why students opt out of engineering during their degree or after entering the workforce.

The Ella Project 

Getting kids to understand the importance of science, technology, mathematics, coding, engineering, and entrepreneurship is a vital and worthwhile goal. It helps them feel empowered, creative, and confident in addition to building essential problem solving skills that they can use throughout their lives. This series of comic books, produced through a collaboration between Ella Adventures and Deloitte, promotes female leadership and encourages young women to explore the wonderful world of STEM – and have fun along the way!
