Idaho Teachers Introduced to Family Engineering

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Over 500 Idaho teachers received training on the Family Engineering program during five different Summer Institutes held in Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Coeur D’Alene, Twin Falls and Meridian. The Summer Institutes were provided by Idaho Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (i-STEM), a coordinated state-wide effort by the State Department of Education, Idaho Professional-Technical Education, educators, businesses, and industry to support STEM education  in K-12th grades. Regional resource centers across the state were supplied with Family Engineering Materials Kits that can be checked out by schools to host Family Engineering events in their local communities.
