Elementary-school students have been learning how to think like engineers -- and solve real-world problems -- through the Engineering is Elementary program, which launched in 2004 by the Museum of Science in Boston. This year, 45,000 teachers nationwide will use the curricular units. "They are utilizing science concepts they're learning about, but also building those 21st-century skills: thinking critically, problem-solving, communication, collaboration," said Faye Harp, a curriculum specialist in the Lakota school district in Ohio.
