YES curricula develop students’ problem-solving abilities. Students tackle real-world problems, scaffolded by an age-appropriate engineering design process. Challenges channel students’ creativity and engage them in engineering and science practices. As they engineer, students use science concepts and computational thinking tools, thus deepening their understanding of these disciplines.
Each YES unit consists of eight to ten 45-minute lessons. A suite of resources, including a Teacher Guide, student Engineering Notebooks, Family Resources, and Assessment Tools support the unit.
