Summary:

Presentation on the importance of requiring K12 schools to include Technology and Engineering as part of their regular classroom curriculum – for all students – for all ages.  Many k-12 schools only have technology and engineering as optional classes in High School and robotics clubs/sports.  They do not teach technology or engineering anywhere in the required curriculum.   Her presentation will discuss why and how people can support this change.
