E4 museum of science

From Nashoba Publishing:

Two groups of fifth graders will participate in a study through the Museum of Science, Boston designed to introduce students to engineering. The Exploring the Efficacy of Elementary Engineering Project will gauge the efficacy of different techniques for teaching engineering to middle school students and will also evaluate how engineering instruction affects underrepresented groups of children, including girls. Throughout the program, students keep science journals, take pre- and post-tests, and engage in hands-on projects.
