Engineer in the Classroom

I recently had the chance to shoot and edit a video about a cool program that is bringing engineers from the Illinois Department of Transportation and other agencies into 5th grade classrooms.

Take a look at the description below and then take a look at the video. If you’re an engineer, I think you’ll see that this program can be very rewarding to you. If you’re a teacher or school administrator, I think you’ll see the same thing from your end.

Engineer in the Classroom is a nationally recognized, award-winning educational program for students in 5th grade.

Since the program’s inception in 2000, engineers have been working with educators to bring this dynamic presentation of engineering to the classroom. Students design and build a working Rube Goldberg device to gain a basic understanding of simple machines and engineering principles.

Contact info is listed at the end of the video.
