A group of Maryland teachers participated in training to prepare them for presenting engineering concepts in the classroom. The weeklong workshop focused on practical classroom activities using everyday items such as Popsicle sticks and rubber bands to engage students in lessons. "It's great to do these hands-on activities that we'll be able to use to get students more involved. With the engineering aspect of this, hopefully we'll be able to spark [the students'] interest," seventh-grade teacher Kara Gustafsson said.
