Title: Engineering the Future: Science, Technology, and Design Process
Url: http://legacy.mos.org/etf/
Publisher: Museum of Science
Description: Engineering the Future: Science, Technology, and the Design Process is a full-year course designed to introduce students to the world of technology and engineering, as a first step in becoming technologically literate citizens. Additionally, the course will help beginning high school students answer the question: "Why should I study math, science and engineering if I don't plan on a technical career?" Through this course's practical real-world connections, students have an opportunity to see how science, mathematics, and engineering are part of their every day world, and why it is important for every citizen to be technologically and scientifically literate.

Engineering the Future maps directly to the Standards for Technological Literacy (ITEA 2000), Benchmarks for Science Literacy (AAAS 1993) and National Science Education Standards (NRC, 1996), as well as many state science frameworks.

In brief, the course is intended to help today's high school students understand the ways in which they will engineer the world of the future whether or not they choose to pursue technical careers.
