A Sightseer’s Guide to Engineering

Found In: math, science, social studies, 3-5, 6-8

A Sightseer’s Guide to Engineering lets students in grades 3-8 take a virtual trip through the 50 states to visit engineering projects. Using the map of the U.S., students can search by keyword, engineering discipline, or category of construction or click a state and choose from a list of projects. The resource could support social studies or STEM classes.

Clicking Illinois, for example, provides a list of 6 sights. One of the sights is Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). Fermilab’s page has a photo of the exterior of the building, a fun fact, a description of the scientific work done there, an acknowledgement of who designed and built Fermilab, a link to a map of its location in Batavia, Illinois and to the official Fermilab website, and a link to a printable version.
