The Novel Engineering (NE) Project, housed at the Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO), includes research and professional development that seek to improve STEM education at the elementary level as well as broaden the range of students engaged in engineering education activities. NE works with teachers to use classroom literature as the context for engineering problems.
