Valtorta, Clara G.; Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2015
Engineering in K-12 classrooms has been receiving expanding emphasis in the United States. The integration of science, mathematics, and engineering is a benefit and goal of K-12 engineering; however, current empirical research on the efficacy of K-12 science, mathematics, and engineering integration is limited. This study adds to this growing…

Berland, Leema K.; Martin, Taylor H.; Ko, Pat; Peacock, Stephanie Baker; Rudolph, Jennifer J.; Golubski, Chris – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
In recent years, there has been a demand to teach engineering in high schools, particularly using a challenge-based curriculum. Many of these programs have the dual goals of teaching students the engineering design process (EDP), and teaching to deepen their understanding and ability to apply science and math concepts. Using both quantitative and…

Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2013
We are increasingly seeing an emphasis on STEM integration in high school classrooms such that students will learn and apply relevant math and science content while simultaneously developing engineering habits of mind. However, research in both science education and engineering education suggests that this goal of truly integrating STEM is rife…

Marshall, Jill A.; Berland, Leema K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
We report the results of a study focused on identifying and articulating an ''epistemic foundation'' underlying a pre-collegiate focus on engineering. We do so in the context of UTeach"Engineering" (UTE), a program supported in part by funding by the National Science Foundation and designed to develop a model approach to address the…
