About CEE

The members of Children’s Engineering Educators are an experienced group of elementary teachers who believe in high standards and rigorous academic instructional programs. These teachers believe that the study and use of technology provides a creative and active way to apply state and national learning standards.

These teachers believe that the hands-on learning involved with children's engineering will encourage children of all learning styles and abilities to develop ownership of the essential knowledge expected of elementary students in our rapidly changing world. They also believe that technology education develops critical thinking skills that will be needed by all students to make sound decisions in the future.

The members are dedicated to providing meaningful hands-on inservice programs for teachers and developing age appropriate technology based teaching activities to will help create technological literate citizens for the 21st Century.
