Engineering education in schools:
- Presents opportunities for students to acquire critical 21st century skills, such as problem-solving, creativity, innovation, and teamwork;
- provides relevant problems and contexts which will motivate students to more deeply learn and apply science and mathematics;
- and promotes habits of mind, such as analytical thinking, that can be applied across a variety of problems, disciplines, and contexts.
