Step 1: Identify the specific engineering-focused NGSS Performance Expectations that your curriculum will align to

Below are flyers stating the specific engineering-focused NGSS Performance Expectations TeachEngineering is soliciting curriculum to be aligned to.

Step 2: Fill out a curriculum proposal for Grade(s) K, 1 or 2

Completely fill out a proposal outlining your proposed curriculum and your timeline for testing your curriculum.

Step 3: Save and email proposal
