Engineering Teachers Replicate Themselves, Part 1

How do you prepare to train engineering teachers? Two teachers, who are also engineers, are preparing to train more teachers this summer to teach engineering. Guests Melanie Kong and Natalie Wyll are chemical and architectural engineers originally, and between the both of them, they have a few years of experience teaching high school engineering. They use the general engineering curriculum "Engineer Your World", developed by The University of Texas at Austin with sponsorship from the National Science Foundation. Melanie and Natalie haven't run this training session before. Here they discuss their mindset before they lead the two-week session, and in a future episode we hope to hear their thoughts after this session is complete. Guest mechanical engineer Sadhan Sathyaseelan moderated this conversation with help from Pius Wong.
