Authentic, impactful, implementable, affordable, and sustainable.
The curriculum offers a truly integrative approach to meeting desired standards through an engineering design-based pedagogy model which enables expert-to-novice educators to teach vital capabilities in programming, robotics, automation, electronics, logistics, supply chain management, engineering design, systems thinking, creative problem solving, and innovation.
Dr. Greg Strimel
An assistant professor of engineering and technology education for Purdue University’s Polytechnic Institute, Strimel has extensively studied engineering-design instruction methods, publishing countless journal articles on the subject, and strives to enhance engineering education on all levels from preschool to high school. Strimel brought his experience with curriculum development to partner with the development of the STEM Education Works curriculum.
Among his many awards, Strimel has received recognition as New Technology & Engineering Teacher of the Year as well as Emerging Leader in Engineering/Technology Education. Thanks to Strimel, STEM Education Works guarantees curriculum that is industry-driven, top-quality and designed for student success.
Developed in partnership with Purdue University’s Department of Technology Leadership and Innovation along with Strimel’s qualifications, credibility is our top priority. The STEM Education Works curriculum meets all the top technology standards, such as Standards for Technological Literacy (STL), Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), while ensuring that students also develop the critical-thinking, problem-solving and technical skills needed for the workforce.
