Practical, Rigorous, Flexible: Using Engineering to Engage and Challenge Talented Students

Saturday, November 11
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Location: 213 D

Learn how to challenge your high-ability elementary students with culturally relevant engineering activities that meet state and national standards and that align with popular science curricula. Participate in a hands-on design challenge in which failure is destigmatized and framed as an essential component to success. These STEM resources are grounded in both formative and summative evaluation and are strongly correlated with measures of engagement, STEM attitudes, and self-efficacy. With little or no adjustment, these activities will appeal to students across gender, race, class, and ability level. Come ready to participate and leave with ideas and resources!

Chris San Antonio is a Senior Research and Evaluation Associate for Engineering is Elementary. He uses both formative and summative assessment to ensure that all curricular materials produced by EiE are grounded in research. Upon joining the EiE team in 2012, San Antonio helped initiate the largest summative assessment of EiE to date. Exploring the Efficacy of Engineering is Elementary (E4) is a National Science Foundation funded efficacy study that compares EiE to a control curriculum. It involves roughly 250 teachers and 14,000 students across three geographic regions. Additionally, San Antonio uses formative evaluation to inform the development of EiE's afterschool and camp programs including Engineering Adventures and Engineering Everywhere. San Antonio holds a B.A in Psychology from Saint Michael's College and an M.A. in Education Research from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
