Our professional development services focus on working with teachers to incorporate more Engineering Design and project-based learning into their classrooms and practices. We work hard to avoid a “layering on” approach. Our working motto is that real change in education needs to be “evolutionary not revolutionary” and that success comes from capitalizing on your strengths. That is why ProjectEngin offers customized interactive workshops.
Starting from our many offerings, we work with you to target the goals that you have for professional training. A teacher’s time is a valuable commodity and we plan extensively to ensure that everyone leaves our workshops ready and committed to implementing some new activities and approaches. Workshop participants gain access to a range of online resources and, if desired, ongoing support. We design our workshops to fit your scheduling needs using either a half, full, or multi-day format. We believe that Engineering is the connecting word in STEM and STEAM initiatives and that it can provide a valuable springboard for multi- and trans-disciplinary learning in all subjects. We have successfully developed and implemented workshops that support the inclusion of Engineering Design in a wide range of disciplines at all grade levels. Our workshops are custom designed for groups that range in size from individual schools to district, diocese, and professional societies.
Contact us today to learn how we can support your educators as they engineer new learning experiences for their students.
While we believe that Engineering Design can play a key role in a wide range of classrooms and subjects, we also realize that many schools opt to begin new initiatives with one or two faculty members. In order to support individual teachers from a number of schools, we offer 1-3 day workshops at various locations throughout the US. These workshops are designed to provide teachers with the resources they need to implement Engineering Design projects in their classrooms along with training to help them become internal advocates on their own faculties. Educators who join us for one of our workshops are also invited to join our online PLC and are often given the opportunity to pilot new projects and curriculum for us at no cost. In addition, participants in regional workshops leave with a complete Engineering Design curriculum module.
Contact us if you think there is enough interest in your area to support a regional workshop. We would be happy to plan one in your area. Most regional workshops are held at the very end of the school year or early in the summer break.

CONFERENCE & PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS
We specialize in interactive learning experiences designed to help teachers make Engineering Design practices, projects, and thinking part of their classroom culture and curriculum. We present at a wide range of conferences as part of our effort to make our approach accessible to all. Our home page features our upcoming commitments. Plan on stopping by our workshop or booth and meeting us if you will be at any of them. Our work is all about you and we learn something new from every teacher we meet!
