Program That Brings the Built Environment into the Classroom

The National Building Museum brings the museum’s educators into classrooms around the nation through livestreamed programs. For example, the Why Engineering? program, designed for students in grades 4–9, investigates the role of engineers who work to make buildings stronger and safer. Students explore engineering and the ways engineers affect the places people live, work, and play. Students hear engineers describe their design process and explain the engineering principles behind projects they have completed in Washington, DC. Through interactive elements, students learn about the importance of creative problem solving and careers in engineering.
