A Workshop on The Engineering Challenge in Denmark – a learning program for middle schools group, held by Experimentarium, April 2014

The workshop was meant to an introduction on the Engineer project for 950 teachers in the city of Gentofte. Many different workshops were being held. The Engineer workshop was for science teachers. Experimentarium and Maglegaard schools were invited to present and host a workshop on the Engineering design model. After a brief introduction on the Engineer model, attendees were asked to tackle the first three Engineer phases building and planning a small set-up that could hold a coffee cup. Then, a didactic discussion started on how this drill could be implemented in schools.

Why is engineering education an important topic? What is the role of Science Centres and museums in introducing engineering in schools? How can engineer projects help creating partnerships with policy makers and industries and what are the benefits? How can we introduce engineering education at a national level?

Over 55 persons attended the event “Science centres and museums as champions in engineering education” organized during the Ecsite Annual Conference on May 21st. Hosted by the headquarters of Shell Netherlands, the event attracted science museum directors and policy makers from over 20 countries.

Facing a growing demand of engineers and a declining number of students interested in such careers, it is essential for Science Centres, museums, industries and policy makers to meet and discuss innovative ways of introducing engineering in schools. With the examples of initiatives taken by Shell Netherlands and science centres and museums in Europe and the United States, the event allowed to show how stakeholders can work together to make change happen.

Since 2003, Boston’s Museum of Science runs ‘Engineering is Elementary’. The program supports educators and children with curricula and professional development that develop engineering literacy. It is now widely spread in primary schools throughout the United States. With these 11 years of experience, Ioannis Miaoulis, President and Director of the Museum of Science, confirmed that the program increased students and teachers’ interest in science and engineering. Building on the proven impacts of the American program, Maya Halevy, Executive Director of the Bloomfield Science Museum Jerusalem in Israel, coordinated a project at European level, aiming at supporting the widespread adoption of innovative methods of science teaching. The project already trained over 1,000 teachers, and developed school/museum activities that will reach 27,000 students before the end of the project in 2014. As well as other partners of the Engineer project, Michiel Buchel, Director General of Science Centre NEMO in Amsterdam plans to further develop the materials of engineering and develop strategic partnerships with many stakeholders in The Netherlands. Together, they aim at innovating STEM education and reach out to schools all over the Netherlands.

In all countries involved in Europe, the project created opportunities for Science Centres to respond to the need of introducing pupils to engineering methods, and spread new ways to teach science. It also boosted new dynamics between industries, schools, policy makers and science centres.

On 2 April 2014 a meeting was held on University Technical College, in Oxford. Bridget Holligan underlined the importance to lead engineering activities in local primary schools, based on ENGINEER resources. Then more young people (especially girls) could be interested in engineering, in attending schools such as the new UTC and in potential STEM careers. Participants were particularly interested in activities making engineering more attractive to girls.
Twenty people were present at the meeting, with some people who gave short presentations and represented STEM employers such as BMW, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, RM Education and Culham Centre for Fusion Energy as well as Oxfordshire County Council, Reading University, Royal Holloway University (London), Didcot Girls’ School and education and training providers such as Activate Learning.

The Foundation C.Génial participates in the contest “Ingénieur en herbe”  !
Within the framework of the European project Engineer, the Musée des arts et métiers is organizing for the first time the contest Engineers for children aged 9 to 11 .
Students – between 8 and 10 years old – are invited to step into the shoes of an engineer and to respond to a proposed challenge.
The first edition is about mecanic and engineering students are invited to discover the engineering profession .

The Foundation C.Génial is very pleased to partner with this project by inviting two ambassadors to the jury of the competition which will be held May 13, 2014 at the Musée des arts et métiers in Paris .
A big thank you to Delphine L. (Orange) and Mohamed Z. ( Areva) for their involvement in the actions of the Foundation and their willingness to share the engineering profession with younger !

Visit May 13, 2014 to discover these draft budding engineers !
