Engineering is the bond in STEM integration in K-12 education. In this chapter, we present an overview of the literature on engineering in K-12 STEM integration, as well as a framework for the development and assessment of integrated STEM activities. The usefulness of the framework is demonstrated through application to three research-based STEM integration curricula. Finally, benefits and barriers for STEM integration in the classroom are presented and discussed.
