Expeditionary Learning has announced a new STEM-focused pre-conference day event on Saturday, December 6th that will be held before its 2014 National Conference from Sunday to Tuesday, December 7th-9th in Boston. 

Bringing Engineering Into the Classrooms: The Power of Real-World Design will be facilitated by Merredith Portsmore and Daniel Wise from Tufts University's Center for Engineering Education and Outreach. Expeditionary Learning's Grade 3 Common Core curriculum module "My Librarian is a Camel: How Do People Access Books Around the World" will be the launch point for an authentic design challenge: to help improve usability of the Tufts University library system. Participants will use a variety of technologies as they build a solution.
