Integrated STEM (Grades 1-5)

Engineering and Computer Science Essentials™:
An Integrated Program Grades 1-5

Game-Changing Integrated STEM

Today, your students are using magnets and thread to solve real-world, hands-on engineering design challenges. Tomorrow, they’re building robots.

Bring together engineering, science, computer science and math with Engineering and Computer Science Essentials™: An Integrated Program. See how science, engineering and computer science practices work together to help learners in life, demonstrate foundations for design challenges, and promote access, equity, and excellence in fun and engaging classroom lessons. Linked by storybook characters and grade-level appropriate concepts, our program creates a world where students can travel from engineering to computer science units seamlessly.

Resources for Diverse Learners

Diverse students. Diverse needs. Open up access for all learners. As a set of high impact resources, the Resources for Diverse Learners are designed to help remove distractions and decrease literacy demands so that all students can succeed in engineering, computer science, and problem solving.  Built-in vocabulary support; guidance on setting context and background; options for different learning styles; and multiple ways for learners to express understanding meet the needs of today’s classrooms.

How the Program Works

Essentials offers online access to the program for teachers, which includes instructional materials, classroom resources, the companion storybook, plus

  • Easy-to-Print Assessments, worksheets, visuals, graphic organizers, and Answer Keys
  • Point of Use Videos
    • Computer Science: links to videos of animated examples, sample final design projects, and programming methods help teachers and students experience computer science.  
    • Engineering: videos show each challenge in action, so you know what to expect as your students work through each lesson and design their engineering solutions.

Flexible Classroom Options

Essentials units are available in one year and three year subscriptions options:

  • Integrated Essentials: Hand Pollinator/Animations Bundle
