Engineering Your Future Lessons
Lesson plans for grades 6-9 have been created by the ThinkTV Network - Greater Dayton Public Television - to accompany this website. Aligned to Ohio Academic Content Standards, the lessons introduce students to the field of engineering.
The 10-minute, streaming video interviews located in the “Engineering Profiles” section of this website give students a behind-the-scenes look at the work that several types of engineers do every day. Students learn about the challenges they face, why they find engineering so exciting, and what they did to prepare for their careers.
The lessons help students further explore various fields of engineering.
