da Vinci Project

Geared Toward Math, Science and Technology Teachers of Grades 5-12

Enrich your teaching and classroom activities by incorporating elemental engineering into your curriculum.

During the July 6 – July 10, 2020 program, participants will spend an exciting week at the Storrs campus learning engineering fundamentals and developing practical curricula and exercises that will help them expose students to engineering. Participants will help select their focused workshop from one of various areas of engineering specialization. Participating teachers are very excited to go back to their classrooms and discuss how chemistry, physics, biology, and/or math knowledge and skills are integrated into solving challenging real-world problems…it’s called engineering!
