The Muse Knoxville
The grant will support the creation and pilot testing of “Design Engineering for Kids.” Children in grades 3-5 will practice engineering design in a series of three one-hour classes. The first two sessions occur at their school or after-school facility, and introduce science concepts and the elements of engineering design. The third session occurs as part of a field trip to The Muse, when students will practice their skills by creating an original design that solves a problem. This immersive experience allows students to direct their own learning and can reach a wide range of learning styles and levels.
