TeachEngineering is FREE for educators everywhere! No fees. No special kits or materials to buy.
No membership is required. We’ve created MyTE, an optional community and workspace where you can keep track of your favorite curricula.
TeachEngineering is here to make it easy, accessible and FREE for all educators to bring engineering into their classroom. A good starting point is to watch our step-by-step YouTube videos
, so you can see how easy teaching engineering can be! You can also browse our
curricula to help you get started—all available from the home page
Yes. Every lesson and activity is explicitly aligned to the science and/or math educational standards of the state in which it was first developed and classroom tested, as well as to the Common Core Math,
Next Generation Science
and ITEEA standards, if they apply. You can even
Search Curricula by Standard
to find ones that directly align to your specific standards.
Our approach is "engineering on a shoestring"—meaning in most cases, our activities use materials that you can find in your classroom, school, home, grocery or hardware store. There are some exceptions, so make sure to take a quick look at the Materials List to see the complete list of materials required. At the top of each activity, we also list the Expendable Cost per Group to give you an estimate of what the materials might cost.
Engineering is the ultimate human endeavor! Through engineering, we’ve improved our world through innovative designs and projects in a variety of fields, from building supercomputers and harnessing the power of biotechnology to sending probes to the outer reaches our our Solar System. Engineering helps us realize our potential. For more on engineering, check out our
