Engineering by Design


Engineering by Design™ (EbD)
A Standards-Based Model Program

"The Engineering by Design™ Program is built on the belief that the ingenuity of children is untapped, unrealized potential that, when properly motivated, will lead to the next generation of technologists, innovators, designers, and engineers."

The International Technology Education Association's Center to Advance the Teaching of Technology and Science (ITEA-CATTS) has developed the only standards-based national model for Grades K-12 that delivers technological literacy. The model, Engineering byDesign™ is built on Standards for Technological Literacy (ITEA); Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM); and Project 2061, Benchmarks for Science Literacy (AAAS).

The International Technology Education Association (ITEA) is the professional organization for technology, innovation, design, and engineering educators. ITEA's 71st Annual Conference will be held in Louisville, Kentucky on March 26-28, 2009.
