Engineering in the Life Sciences is a collection of lessons and teacher instructions that integrate engineering standards and designed projects into life science. Written for high school teachers, the first chapter of the book describes how the engineering standards work with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for life sciences.

This chapter is followed by six classroom-tested examples of life science lessons that include engineering components. Each of the six lessons incorporates one or more of the Life Science content areas in the NGSS standards. Each lesson takes multiple days, and a reasonable estimation of timing is included. These lessons are laid out with lots of resources for the teacher. Each lesson follows a 6E staged series of activities. NGSS alignment, assessment criteria, unit progression, content outline, materials lists, resources, and student worksheets for each of the activities are given.

The suggested uses of resources, including differentiation ideas, are helpful....
