Inspire Elementary Students with Engineering, a new online professional development course from PBS TeacherLine® helps pre K-6 grade teachers build on their subject-area knowledge while learning innovative instructional strategies they can apply in the classroom to teach engineering concepts. Teachers learn how to provide students with an early foundation in engineering through standards-based science and math curriculum, and to develop students' critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

The course was developed by the Institute for P-12 Engineering Research and Learning (INSPIRE) within the Purdue University School of Engineering Education, and is now open for enrollment for the Winter 2010-11 term. For more information or to enroll, visit www.pbs.org/teacherline.
