      Connecting Literacy and Engineering: Empowering Students in K-12 Education

      Posted by Hannah Olson on Wed, Sep 6, 2023

      As educators strive to offer students a comprehensive learning experience, combining diverse subjects is a compelling choice such as integrating literacy and engineering. This dynamic integration fosters creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills among others. Let's explore some benefits and examples of combining literacy and engineering, offering educators and students opportunities to venture into these domains. 


      Where Literacy and Engineering Meet 

      While literacy and engineering might seem unrelated, they actually complement each other. Both involve problem-solving, creativity, and effective communication. Literacy helps students express their thoughts, while engineering sparks innovation and hands-on learning. Combining these strengths creates a powerful educational mix that readies students for a rapidly changing world. 

      The Benefits of Blending Literacy and Engineering 

      Sharper Critical Thinking 

      When you bring together literacy and engineering, students get better at solving problems in different ways. For instance, think about making a simple machine like a lever. By reading about how levers work and then actually making one, students learn how to think creatively and solve challenges from different angles.
