Chris San Antonio-Tunis, EiE

Elementary Engineer’s is excited to welcome Kristy Kidd to our first ever EiE training. She is the director of STEM Starters+ at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. ¬†This is what EiE has to say about her work…

“Researchers at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock are using EiE in a study that aims to promot equity in gifted and talented programs…

About 3,000 elementary students in four Arkansas districts will be learning with EiE plus two other enriching STEM curricula. The researchers predict that with raised awareness of how STEM skills indicate talent, more students who are black, Hispanic, or from low-income families will be enrolled in gifted and talented programs.”

Engineering is Elementary is a project of the National Center for Technological Literacy at the Museum of Science, Boston.
