TeachEngineering Digital Library

TeachEngineering is a searchable, educational standards-based digital library containing K-12 engineering education content designed for use by teachers. Containing more than 1,100 hands-on engineering activities and lessons created by 30 engineering colleges across the nation, it remains fresh with ~100 K-12 engineering lessons/activities added annually.

TeachEngineering has long been recognized for its high quality, receiving the National Science Digital Library 2010 Recognition of Excellence Award, and as a component of the National Academy of Engineering’s 2008 Gordon Prize. Led by the University of Colorado Boulder, the focus of the multi-institution TeachEngineering team is to keep the content freely accessible for teachers, relevant to end-users, and continuously aligned with cross-state science, technology and engineering standards.
