- About Us
TeachEngineering is a digital library of over 800 K-12 engineering lessons and hands-on activities. The lesson materials in TeachEngineering are developed by a variety of organizations and programs and are made available free-of-charge to educators.
The Oregon State University Open Source Lab is proud to provide hosting and system administration for the TeachEngineering website and development servers. TeachEngineering has become another great example of the use of open source at OSU.
Development of the collection was motivated by the following:
Besides its HTML interface targeted at people, TeachEngineering both exposes and uses a variety of Web services. Among these are services to expose its collection's metadata to other collections―try, for example, a search for the term 'spaghetti' in the National Science Digital Library ―and services from third-party providers that help with the automatic alignment of curriculum and standards.
The collection and its software infrastructure are housed at Oregon State University's Open Source Lab and are almost entirely developed and implemented using open source software tools. Visit http://www.teachengineering.org for more information.
