TEAK: Overview

The TEAK (Traveling Engineering Activity Kit) Project is an RIT Kate Gleason College of Engineering effort that resulted in a series of hands-on, portable kits, with lesson plans, that can be used to teach engineering concepts to middle school students, as well as training materials for engineering students who will be teaching engineering to younger students. The TEAK Project is primarily student-developed, involving RIT students of all year levels from the colleges of Engineering (KGCOE), Imaging Arts and Sciences (CIAS), Applied Science and Technology (CAST), and Computing and Information Science (GCCIS). TEAK materials have impacted over 4000 students and educators in the Rochester, NY area since 2007.

This site contains complete documents for our traveling engineering activity kits, including lesson plans and handouts, as well as the materials we have developed for student outreach teacher training.

Partial support for the TEAK Project is provided by the National Science Foundation's Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program under Award No. 0737462.

Partial support for development of the TEAK Energy & Environment kids was provided under an American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers Senior Projects Grant
