Engineering Education in K-12

Are you looking for resources for teaching engineering in K-12? The ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) has some online resources for you. From the About page:

The ASEE EngineeringK12 Center seeks to identify and gather in one place the most effective engineering education resources available to the K-12 community. From comprehensive data on outreach programs to profiles of “cool” engineers to hundreds of links and readings related to engineering education, the ASEE EngineeringK12 Center offers immediately useful, easily accessible materials specifically tailored to students’ and educators’ interests. The ASEE EngineeringK12 Center hopes to serve as a resource hub for stakeholders in engineering education.

They even have a free newsletter. Personally I think that we need to teach children about engineering as a career and fields of interest from a much younger age than we do now. Real success for a company, a country or even a person generally comes from actually making something people can use. Engineering is a big part of that.
