CKMS uses the Boston Museum of Science's engineering curriculum, Engineering is Elementary (EIE). EIE units are paired with science units in grades 1 through 5 creating units that teach concepts both from the science and engineering perspectives. In every grade students use the Engineering Design Process to solve real world enginnering problems.
Engineering is Elementary has recently created units for Kindergarten. CKMS is the only school in the state to have piloted these new units.
Our goal with engineering instruction is to provide in depth learning of the Next Generation Science Standards as well as engage students in hands-on project based learning centered around real world problems.
