Lottero-Perdue, Pamela S.; Lachapelle, Cathy P. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2019
The aim of this study was to assess evidence for the validity of General Mindset (GM) and Engineering Mindset (EM) surveys that we developed for fifth-grade students (ages 10-11). In both surveys, we used six items to measure student mindset to determine if it was more fixed (presuming intelligence is fixed and failure is a sign that one is not…

Affeldt, Fiona; Meinhart, Daniel; Eilks, Ingo – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Practical work is an essential component of science education. However, insufficient approaches towards practical work can limit the potential it has for promoting both students' motivation and situational interest. One suggestion to solve this problem is to use alternative forms of lab instruction which are both motivating and easy to comprehend.…

Douglas, Kerrie A.; Moore, Tamara J.; Johnston, Amanda C.; Merzdorf, Hillary E. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Assessment of students' critical thinking and problem solving in engineering is a real challenge for classroom teachers and researchers. Yet, students demonstrate evidence of learning through multiple means, including written reflections. The purpose of this study was to explore how students in grades 5 and 7 reflect on what they had learned about…

Lachapelle, Cathy P.; Brennan, Robert T. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Engineers and policymakers have expressed concern that too few students enter the engineering pipeline. This has led to many efforts to engage students in engineering in after-school programs, summer programs, and more recently, in school curricula. The expectation is that, through these efforts, greater numbers of more demographically diverse…

Morán-Soto, Gustavo; Benson, Lisa – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
This mixed methods research study focuses on two relevant factors in students' decisions to pursue and complete an engineering major: mathematics preparation and mathematics self-efficacy. This study describes the relationship of mathematics self-efficacy on engineering students' performance, behavior, and attitudes in their first college…

Wright, Christopher G.; Wendell, Kristen B.; Paugh, Patricia P. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In the growing field of K-12 engineering education, there is limited research that highlights the experiences of youth from historically marginalized communities within engineering learning environments. This study offers insights into the ways in which two groups of elementary school students constructed approaches for participating in the…

Evagorou, Maria; Mauriz, Blanca Puig – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Socioscientific issues are ill-structured problems that involve moral, ethical, and financial aspects, and lack clear-cut solutions. Teaching socioscientific issues necessarily puts a demand on teachers to draw on knowledge stemming from other domains, and to also appreciate, and present to the students the societal aspects of science. For new…

Celik, Harun – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
In science teaching, metaphors are important tools for understanding meaningful learning and conceptual formation by the help of daily life language. This study aims to evaluate how the concepts of heat, temperature and energy are perceived by students in secondary school science classes and how the perceptions of these concepts vary in terms of…

Erdogan, Niyazi; Stuessy, Carol L. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
This study aims to generate a conceptual framework for specialized Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) schools. To do so, we focused on literature and found specialized STEM schools have existed for over 100 years and recently expanded nationwide. The current perception for these schools can be described as unique environments…
