Free Engineering Resources

Free Engineering ResourcesAs I started to prepare for this school year, I searched out available engineering resources for my 5th grader who loves creative science challenges.  I found gold!  These studies from Engineering is Elementary are free and most of them only require items you can easily find at a dollar store.

In order to download each study, you will need to fill out a form and share your name, address, and email address.  I did this months ago and I don’t think I’ve received a single email.

Engineering Adventures

These units are designed for grades 3-5 as afterschool activities.  You can download the student guide and a teacher’s guide for each unit.  Click here go to the Engineering Adventures curriculum units page.

You will find units on:

  • Flying Technologies
  • Rockets and Rovers
  • Bubble Wands
  • Aid Drop Packages
  • Earthquakes
  • Recycled Racers
  • Invasive Species

Engineering Everywhere

These units are designed for grades 6-8.  They also have a student guide and a teacher’s guide available for download.  They only had two a couple months ago so I suspect they will be adding more in the future.  Click here to see the current curriculum units available.

They currently have units for:

  • Urban Landscapes
  • Insulated Homes
  • Safety Helmets
  • Ice Cream

  1. wow! This is great! Do you use this for a few weeks at a time? Do you have another science curriculum you use interspersed with these? Or will you use this as your primary science material? I think I might use it as our science material for the year!
