Jackson, Andrew; Mentzer, Nathan; Kramer-Bottiglio, Rebecca – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Engineering career interest, especially that of young women, declines as they approach high-school graduation. We used expectancy-value theory, which emphasizes expectations for success and subjective value of experiences as antecedent factors to choice, as a framework for investigating new 9th grade soft robot design lessons. Compared to…
