Engineering for Every K–12 Student: A Landscape Analysis of K–12 Engineering Education in the Greater Boston Region

Full Description: 

This landscape study, funded by the National Science Foundation and developed collaboratively by EDC and Tufts University, takes a look at the state of K–12 engineering education in the Greater Boston region. Through targeted interviews with and a survey of Boston-area stakeholders, the authors aimed to learn where stakeholders’ interests overlap and where needs exist. The analysis was augmented by a review of literature and websites. Massachusetts is clearly a frontrunner in K–12 engineering education and home to a great many stakeholder groups invested in improving engineering education, collaborating in a variety of ways. However, findings from this study indicate that stakeholders recognize that while opportunities abound for students, there are particular gaps. Read the report to learn more.
