Engineering is Elementary

  • The engineering program at Westonka's two primary schools allows students to experience the work of an engineer and solve open-ended problems, applying their math, science, language arts and problem solving skills

    Hilltop Primary School and Shirley Hills Primary School use the Engineering is Elementary (EiE) and Full Option Science System (FOSS) curriculum to teach engineering and technology lessons. Both programs:

    • Foster engineering and technological literacy among children
    • Integrate engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science topics
    • Promote inquiry and problem solving
    • Engage students with meaningful, active learning experiences
