Engineering Habits of Mind-Primary

Engineering Habits of Mind have been developed by the Centre for Real World Learning and the Royal Academy of Engineering. This list supports teaching in finding out more about what these habits of mind are and how they can benefit children's learning of engineering and other subjects at primary level. It includes a full explanation of the EHoM and ideas that schools have used to embed them within teaching and learning.

Thinking like an engineer: implications for the education system

This report, from the Royal Academy of Engineering, offers fresh insights into the ways engineers think. It identifies six engineering habits of mind which, taken together, describe the ways engineers think and act. The report makes a compelling case to suggest that, if the UK wants to produce more engineers, it needs to redesign the education system so that these habits become the desired outcomes of engineering education.
