The Sphero Blueprint Engineering Design Process adheres closely to the eight Science and Engineering Practices (SEP) identified in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The SEPs are essential for helping our students “investigate the world and design and build systems.”
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) recognized that STEM education efforts frequently promote science and math instruction over technology and engineering, and developed their own set of the standards. The Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy (STEL) focus less on discrete facts and more on knowing, thinking, and doing.
