ENGR 19500–II – Spring 2010 DESIGN PROJECT Design Project: Project Description Interoffice Memo To: Engineering 19500 Design Teams From: Cory Marshall, Principal, Wea Ridge Middle School RE: Exciting Middle School Students about Science, Math, and Engineering Nationally, it is challenging to attract students into the fields of math, science, engineering, and technology. The economy of today and the future will provide enormous opportunities for careers in these fields, but students need to be academically ready to pursue those fields when they enter college. That means that they must choose to study math and science topics in high school. Preparation for that starts in middle school, and that is where we want your help. Today’s K-12 curricula are driven by state and national education standards. Schools and students are evaluated based on students’ scores on standardized tests. In Indiana these are called the ISTEP tests. It is important that students learn the topics covered on the standards, but they also need to develop the higher level thinking skills needed to become a scientist or engineer. We believe that you can help us accomplish both of these while providing excitement and motivation that are key ingredients to student success. Many students are hands-on and visual learners.
