About Us

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Teaching Garage leads innovation in education.

We partner with industry leaders from school districts, publishing companies, and private, government, non-profit agencies to transform the classroom and educate the students of tomorrow.

Learning should be fun, challenging, and empowering. The way to make students exceed our expectations is to allow them to iterate, fail, and improve their learning through collaboration. Engineering naturally facilitates this adaptive, continuous learning. We believe in teaching students how to learn–not just what to learn.

DESIGN SySTEM

The world needs engineers and innovators to drive economies and solve intractable problems for communities across the globe.

We start at the beginning. Design SySTEM fits into the school day and inspires elementary students to see themselves as future leaders in the engineering and technology industries.

Design SySTEM puts students in the driver’s seat.

THE CURRICULUM

The curriculum’s goals are to introduce the different types of engineers, engage students in project-based learning through the Engineering Design Process, and guide classroom and STEM teachers without formal engineering training or professional backgrounds in delivering comprehensible lessons.

Curriculum Features:

  • Scripted digital engineering curriculum for elementary school teachers for easy lesson planning and delivery
  • Student-driven hands-on building and prototyping for project-based learning using recyclables and basic school supplies
  • Partnerships with industry experts to integrate real industry engineering design challenges into instruction
  • Showcase of 10 fields of engineering while focusing on the iterative Engineering Design Process
  • Alignment with national and state ELA and Science standards
  • Yearlong curriculum instruction for Grades 2-5
