Herbert Hoover said this about the engineering profession: "There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realisation in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings homes to men or women. Then it elevates the standard of living and adds to the comforts of life. This is the engineer's high privilege." Content from public broadcasting like e² and DESIGN SQUAD can help students practice the multiple disciplines that engineers must master and help them envision the steps they need to take to join this profession.

The Tennessee STEM Innovation Network was commissioned to discover and share Tools & Resources around STEM education. This page will continue to grow and make available the curricular units and professional development models created at the TSIN platform schools and STEM innovation hubs. Users may also find opportunities for students and teachers, as well as assets developed to further the cause of STEM in Tennesse
Students are introduced to the basic principles behind engineering and the types of engineering while learning about an always-popular topic—the Olympics. The involvement of engineering in modern sports is amazing and pervasive. Students learn about the techniques of engineering problem solving, including brainstorming and the engineering design process. The importance of thinking out of the box is stressed through a discussion of the engineering required to build grand, often complex, Olympic event centers. Students review what they know about kinetic and potential energy as they investigate the design of energy-absorbing materials, relating this to the design of lighter, faster and stronger sports equipment to improve athletic performance and protect athletes. Students consider states of matter and material properties as they see the role of chemical engineering in the Olympics. Students also learn about transportation and the environment, and the relationship between architecture and engineering.
