offers unique opportunities to apply numerous academic concepts through
practical, hands-on applications.
content, process and skills should be used together to effectively
engage students and promote a complete understanding of the sciences,
related technologies and their interrelationship.

"We need to make technology and engineering as important as science and math in
STEM education," says Ioannis Miaoulis, president and director of the Museum of
Science, Boston and founding director of its National Center for Technological
According to Miaoulis, introducing engineering into the K-12 curriculum is
critical because engineering design skills and concepts engage students in using
their math and science knowledge to solve real problems and create new
technologies. "Until now, school curricula have focused more on the natural
world, not the technological one. But it is the technological, or human-made,
world that facilitates 95% of our daily experience," he says. "Technological
literacy is basic literacy."
Recognizing a 21st century curriculum must include human-made world, the NCTL
advocates for engineering education in schools and museums nationwide, helping
states modify educational standards and assessments, creating standards-based
K-12 engineering materials, offering educators professional development, and
creating museum exhibits and programs.
