Flowers, Jim – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
As a resource for manufacturing and construction, wood has much to offer: it is renewable, beautiful, locally obtainable, and rather easy to machine. In addition to building products out of wood, wood can be scientifically studied in the classroom and lab. In the age of STEM integration, technology and engineering teachers can teach wood science,…

Potter, Barry S.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Glennie, Elizabeth J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Educators understand that the current assessment-based standards are not going away anytime soon. Performance based assessments (PBAs) are an effective way of determining the level of student learning that has occurred in a lesson. While some multiple-choice tests tend to only assess the memorization of factual knowledge, PBAs focus on…

Ensley, Keith – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
While the satellite industry is characterized by dynamic innovation, it has steadily matured into a healthy, market-driven model of customers, value generators, and supporting suppliers. Even while the satellite market remains strong, satellite employers are caught squarely in the aerospace talent management paradigm. When a product line is…

Wells, John G. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
The PIRPOSAL model is both a conceptual and pedagogical framework intended for use as a pragmatic guide to classroom implementation of Integrative STEM Education. Designerly questioning prompted by a "need to know" serves as the basis for transitioning student designers within and among multiple phases while they progress toward an…

Prasa, Anthony R., Jr.; Del Guercio, Ryan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Engineers are faced with solving important problems every day and must follow a step-by-step design process to arrive at solutions. Students who are taught an effective design process to apply to engineering projects begin to see problems as an engineer would, consider all ideas, and arrive at the best solution. Using an effective design process…

Caccavale, Frank – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Any parent, teacher, or coach who works with students today will admit there is a lot of competition for a student's time and attention. After school dismisses, video games, homework, sports, extracurricular activities, and more occupy students' time. It is equally as challenging to compete for their attention during the school day. New electives…

Johns, Gary; Mentzer, Nathan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Teachers can find opportunities to incorporate design thinking and scientific inquiry within any lesson where a constraint of the design can be connected to a scientific experiment. Within a lesson, this connection establishes context between engineering and science and can positively impact students' learning and interest in these subjects. The…

Love, Tyler S. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
Before giving students permission to construct and test their designs, students must understand how to use hazardous tools, machines, and chemicals in a safe manner. Students often complain that they have already seen the safety videos and passed the same safety tests in prerequisite Integrative STEM Education (I-STEM Ed) courses. Although they…
