Implications for Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Outreach Efforts ofEvolving Design Standards for Elementary EducationKeith J. Bowman and Brenda CapobiancoThe National Science Foundation-funded project, Science Learning through EngineeringDesign” (SLED) is one of nineteen targeted Math and Science Partnerships focused onscience education and one of only four focused on elementary education. At leasttwelve states, including Massachusetts, Indiana and Minnesota, have established pre-engineering or design standards that have potential implications for effectively engagingelementary school teachers and students with content related to materials science andengineering. Authentically engaging teachers and students with content that transformsscience and math education requires MSE educators an understanding of teachers’orientations to the engineering design process as well as the context within whichteachers teach the content, develop standards-based curriculum, and most importantly,how students learn through design. This paper will address and discuss implications ofprior work on introduction of MSE content for K-12 education, including nanotechnology,in the context of existing and evolving standards for math and science education at theupper elementary level.
