Abstract

Engineering Our Future New Jersey (EOFNJ) is a collaborative effort between Stevens Institute of Technology, the New Jersey Department of Education, the Museum of Science (MoS), Boston's National Center for Technological Literacy (NCTL), and other partners to bring exemplary technology and engineering curricula to mainstream New Jersey K-12 education. The goal of the Engineering Our Future New Jersey initiative is to ensure that all K-12 students in New Jersey experience engineering curricula with a focus on innovation, as a required component of their elementary, middle, and high school education within the next five years. In doing so, we aim to strengthen existing educational policy in New Jersey to articulate engineering competencies both in the language of the standards and the required assessments. EOFNJ is transitioning from the pilot phase into a state-wide implementation phase. This paper provides an overview of the EOFNJ initiative, describes current activities, offers preliminary evaluation results and describes the exemplary curricula being promoted.
