e4usa provides professional learning (PL) throughout the year to prepare and support teachers
The mission of Engineering for US All (e4usa) encompasses both students and teachers. Paramount to the success of e4usa is the construction and delivery of professional learning (PL) experiences throughout the year to prepare and support teachers with different levels of engineering training and instruction as they implement the course.
As a result of engaging in e4usa PD and PL, teachers and coaches receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from the University of Maryland.
