Educational Engineering--School Improvement Through Economical Applications of Research.
Lutz, John E.
Basic science is a process by which new knowledge is discovered; engineering is the process by which this new knowledge is made useful for practical situations or to solve particular problems. In education, new products are developed, research is completed, and the knowledge base is expanded, but there is no corollary to the engineer to make applications and solve problems with the information produced. The Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit, as a regional education service agency, has attempted to establish the concept of educational engineering and, through multiplier training, has also attempted to establish "resident engineers" in each participating school district.
