Thoughts from the Chair

Hints of spring are in the air, and that means the end of the academic year is fast approaching and the annual conference isn’t far behind. I hope that each of you has found successes and inspiration in your work, and that you will be sharing some of that with us when we gather in Tampa.

Opportunities & Recognition

The 3rd P-12 Engineering Education Symposium
A P-12 Framework for Engineering Teaching and Learning

When: June 5th  – June 7th , 2019

Where: Engineer’s Club @ The Garrett-Jacobs Mansion, in Baltimore, MD

You are invited to attend the Advancing Excellence in P-12 Engineering Education (AE3) collaborative and the 3rd AE3 Symposium. This gathering seeks to provide two powerful benefits: first, promote collaboration to pursue a vision/direction for P-12 Engineering Education; and second, the development of a coherent content framework for scaffolding the teaching of engineering at the primary and secondary levels. The 3rd AE3 Symposium will specifically focus on the Framework for Engineering Teaching & Learning developed through the first two symposia. During this event, participants will hear from national leaders in engineering education, industry, and curriculum development to serve as provocateurs as they examine the engineering classroom experience and reflect on the needs for teacher preparation and development. We, and our sponsors, hope that this work will serve as a basis for further thought and action to address the paucity of engineering education at the P-12 level.
The event is free to attendees. However, space is limited. Registration, a tentative agenda, and list of speakers can be found at:
Questions can be sent to Dr. Tanner Huffman (
