This workshop provides an overview of the practice of engineering, including exploration of the mindset of successful engineers and examination of problem-solving techniques and key mathematical concepts often used by engineers in the field. Interactive discussions offer insights into the engineering profession, and give teachers a level of familiarity with common characteristics of engineers. Group activities provide teachers with strategies for naturally incorporating engineering concepts into classroom lessons, which may foster student interest in engineering. A goal of the workshop is to enable teachers to recognize and encourage students with an aptitude and affinity for engineering as a career. Discussions during the workshop address the relationship between engineering concepts and Mathematics Standards. The workshop directly benefits secondary school teachers in mathematics and physical sciences, but is general enough to inform all teachers with an interest in learning about how engineers think and work.
