Engineering as a Vehicle for Math and Science

You are here

Engineering integrates math and science concepts in a real-world context, and our faculty and graduate students have developed dozens of curriculum plans that excite students and meet state standards in math, science and technology. The College of Engineering and Applied Science can help you to enrich your math and science courses.

Graduate Teaching Fellows in the Classroom — As part of an NSF GK-12 Program, TEAMS Fellows, comprised of engineering graduate students, partner with teachers in local schools to introduce engineering as a potential career choice to students. CU engineering students have served as engineering experts in K-12 schools since 1999, reaching thousands of Colorado students in third through twelfth grade. 

Visit the ITL Laboratory With Your Class — The Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory is open for school group tours. Kids will love the interactive exhibits, which teach engineering concepts in fun and unusual ways. Visit K-12 School Tour to learn more about this outstanding facility.

Spark Your Students' Interest through Space — The Colorado Space Grant Consortium also works with teachers, provides classroom speakers and offers tours as part of its mission to extend space education to students throughout Colorado.

Online Resources
CU-Boulder has led a team of collaborating universities in the development of an online digital library, populated with more than 1,400 standards-based, NGSS-aligned engineering lessons and activities for use by K-12 educators. The TeachEngineering digital library, which continues to grow monthly, provides free access to its resources and is searchable by subject, grade level, key words, standards, activity or lesson.
