Kansas elementary school to teach engineering classes

A Kansas school district will become the first in the country to offer engineering classes at the elementary-school level. The Derby school district began offering engineering courses in middle and high schools this year, but a pilot program next year will bring aerospace engineering lessons to a district elementary school.

The curriculum is designed by Project Lead the Way and will include hands-on and computer-based activities. The Wichita Eagle has details.
