Kutnick, Peter; Chan, Rosanna Yuen-Yan; Chan, Cecilia Ka Yuk; Good, David; Lee, Betty Pok-Yee; Lai, Veronica Ka Wai – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2018
Many post-industrial societies have seen a decline in secondary school students' aspirations to become an engineer. Hong Kong (HK) is a post-industrial region within a larger industrialising society where no current study identifies engineering aspirations of secondary students. A representative sample of HK (3724 students/23 schools) explored…

Boys, Alexander J.; Walsh, Mark C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Elementary and middle school science curricula typically focus on generating an interest in science and engineering through the use of hands-on activities that demonstrate specific concepts. Laboratory activities designed in this manner often circumvent some of the main challenges that engineers and scientists face, namely balancing advantages and…

Taylor, Gemma – School Science Review, 2014
"Real life" learning has often been suggested as a good method for engaging students in the science curriculum. In this article, an evidence-based rationale for the use of engineering as a context for "real life" science study is explained. This has been achieved through development work undertaken by the National Science…
