While visiting James Fallows’ website writing this book review, I came across his article (oops, I guess his wife wrote it) about one of the coolest things I’ve heard of in a while: an elementary school intentionally geared toward teaching engineering.
It seems that at J. Whittenberg Elementary in Greenville, SC, they have fully integrated technology and problem solving and, yes, engineering into nearly every facet of their curriculum. I am in awe, and severely tempted to move to Greenville. If only Clemson had any faculty positions opening up in the next year or two . . .
