Academy for K-12 Teachers
Resources and information specifically for educators in the K-12 sector
E arthquake engineering is an excellent context to engage learners in authentic inquiry and engineering design activities. As teachers, we want to integrate the ideas of our state and national standards into cohesive curricula.
One viable theme for this is earthquake engineering.
Science and Engineering in Terms of National Educational Standards
E ducators of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are all interested in meeting and exceeding state and National standards. The National Academies are working toward a new conceptual framework for science standards that will help align goals of K-12 education with higher education.
NEES educators have used the context of earthquake science and engineering to organize a collection of learning experiences you can use with your students to meet science standards. This collection continues to grow and you can search for recent additions in the Academy Resources.
