Design SySTEM: Grades 2-3

Subscribe $19.99 / month

The Design SySTEM curriculum was intentionally designed to be flexibly used by elementary school classrooms (K-6). Just make sure you start with the Introduction to Engineering unit first (or try it out for free!).

The Grade 2-3 and Grade 4-5 packages are differentiated by the language and concepts used in the lesson plans. However, many of our teachers use the full curriculum and simply differentiate instruction for upper and lower grades. 

The Grade 2-3 package contains the following six units:

  • Acoustical Engineering
  • Agricultural Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Manufacturing Engineering
  • Marine Engineering
  • Structural Engineering

If you would like to subscribe to the 
full curriculum, your package will additionally include:

  • Astronautical Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Mining Engineering
  • Petroleum Engineering
  • Robotics Engineering
  • Software Engineering


  • Digital STEM curriculum for Grades 2-5
  • Scripted lessons covering 12 fields of engineering (in full curriculum)
  • Standards-aligned: NGSS, Common Core ELA, Math Extensions
  • Project-Based Learning: Real-world challenges sourced from industry leaders
  • Each lesson includes an informal student assessment
  • Each unit includes a project rubric and student documentation sheet
  • Low-Cost: Prototypes using recyclables and basic school supplies
  • Frameworks: Engineering Design Process, Career Exposure, "Four C's" (Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity)
  • Adoption: Public Schools, Private Schools, After-Schools, Summer Schools, International Schools
