‘Through My Window’ — Free Engineering Curriculum, Grades 4-8

Smith College and Springfield Technical Community College have developed Through My Window, a free engineering curriculum for Grades 4-8 that integrates STEM and literacy via three flexible components:

  • Young adult STEM mystery novel, Talk to Me
  • Interactive online learning adventures about engineering topics
  • Teachers’ curriculum guide

Applications are being accepted from schools and other programs, both formal and informal, to implement this curriculum in the spring, summer or fall of 2017.  Applicants selected through this process will receive a $500 stipend and free educator support, including free customized lesson plans and professional development.  Application is quick and easy at goo.gl/forms/LcFmambLBHpk8Lmi2. For more information, email Outreach Coordinator Isabel Huff at ishuff@stcc.edu.  She has told NewtonSTEM that Through the Window would love to work with schools or programs in the Newton area.
