Engineering For Educators (E4E) @ UofT Engineering
Hosted by the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, Engineering for Educators (E4E) is an opportunity for secondary and post-secondary communities to come together in a collaborative way. Through E4E we hope to connect with dedicated educators like you to share ideas and discuss new and innovative ways to bring STEM education into the classroom.
Engineering for Educators is designed to benefit secondary STEM teachers and their students in a number of ways. Teachers will have the opportunity to explore our program and facilities, to hear from current Engineering students about their own experience and future plans, and to discuss approaches to curricular and transition-related challenges. Over the course of our full-day program, participants will have the opportunity to meet with professors and program representatives to explore a number of curriculum ideas what will expose your students to a host of engineering possibilities.
