Two employees from Siemens visited Diane Berner’s fourth and fifth graders today to give students feedback on their submersible designs and talk about their careers. Engineer Tyler Gray (Cardinal Stritch) and Technical Instructor Mary O’Hara (Keokuk High School) are both Keokuk graduates. Students use the Engineering Design Process to research, design, test, and improve their models. The Engineering is Elementary curriculum was purchased with a Governor’s STEM Advisory Council Scale Up grant. The newly adopted Next Generation Science Standards include engineering concepts for K-12.
