Wright, Christopher G.; Likely, Rasheda; Wendell, Kristen B.; Paugh, Patricia P.; Smith, Elizabeth – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Professional learning communities are typically conceived of as spaces for reducing teacher isolation, supporting informed and committed teachers, and fostering student academic gains. Focusing on a professional learning community that supported the teaching and learning of engineering in elementary schools, we also conceived of this learning…

Strimel, Greg; Huffman, Tanner; Grubbs, Michael; Kim, Eunhye; Gurganus, Jamie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Engineering education has increasingly become an area of interest at the P-12 level, yet attempts to align engineering knowledge, skills, and habits to existing elementary and secondary educational programming have been parochial in nature (e.g., for a specific context, grade, or initiative). Consequently, a need exists to establish a coherent…

Ehsan, Hoda; Cardella, Monica E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
In the last two decades, pre-college engineering education has increased, with research on pre-college engineering education emerging as a nascent field. However, limited research, if any, has considered aspects of engineering thinking of children with neurodiversity. In line with calls for broadening participation in engineering education,…

Matusovich, Holly; Gillen, Andrew; Carrico, Cheryl; Knight, David; Grohs, Jake – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Family, school, and community contexts each link to secondary school enrollment, yet these factors have been comparatively examined only in limited ways. A holistic examination of contextual factors will be particularly important for engineering where college enrollment patterns vary by demographics. To begin explaining patterns of engineering…

McLean, Mandy; Nation, Jasmine M.; Spina, Alexis; Susko, Tyler; Harlow, Danielle; Bianchini, Julie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Research suggests that, to narrow the gender gap in engineering, we should focus on helping young girls identify with engineering both because gendered attitudes emerge around kindergarten and because identity is more predictive than performance on persistence in the field. This qualitative study sought to understand the impact of collaborative…

Hammack, Rebekah; Utley, Juliana; Ivey, Toni; High, Karen – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
The purpose of the current study was to determine the impacts of a multiple-day engineering-focused professional development program on elementary teachers' perceptions of the work of engineers and their use of mathematics and science. Data were collected in the form of drawings of engineers prior to and immediately after the professional…

Kye, Hannah – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
Makerspaces and maker education are widely seen as means to democratize science and engineering education. A small but growing body of scholarly work warns against this assumption and calls for an explicit focus on equity in makerspaces both online and in person. With an understanding of learning as a social and cultural process, this paper…

Harlan, Jessica; Van Haneghan, James – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2020
As part of a longitudinal study of the development and implementation of a middle school engineering design curriculum, we have used an occupational values subscale of the Assessing Men and Women in Engineering (AWE) project's Engineering version of the Core Survey for Middle School-Aged Participants to measure student occupational interest in…

Burack, Cathy; Melchoir, Alan; Hoover, Matthew – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
One result of the growing concerns over the numbers of young people moving into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-related careers has been the expansion of formal and informal STEM education programming for pre-college youth, from elementary school through high school. While the number of programs has grown rapidly, there is…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
To effectively incorporate engineering into their instruction, K-12 teachers need sufficient knowledge of the engineering discipline. An important component of teachers' engineering knowledge is their understanding of the nature of engineering: what engineers do, the epistemological underpinnings of engineering, and the relationships between…

Anwar, Saira; Bascou, Nicholas Alexander; Meneske, Muhsin; Kardgar, Asefeh – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
There has been a steady increase in the number of studies investigating educational robotics and its impact on academic and social skills of young learners. Educational robots are used both in and out of school environments to enhance K-12 students' interest, engagement, and academic achievement in various fields of STEM education. Some prior…

Utley, Juliana; Ivey, Toni; Weaver, John; Self, Mary Jo – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
A key goal of pre-college engineering programs is to increase the number and retention of students pursuing engineering degrees. The researchers conducted a transcript analysis in order to compare the retention of entering engineering majors at a university based on whether or not they participated in Project Lead the Way (PLTW) in high school.…

Porter, Teresa; West, Meg E.; Kajfez, Rachel L.; Malone, Kathy L.; Irving, Karen E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
Increased attention on the implementation of engineering education into elementary school classrooms aims to start preparing students early for potential engineering careers. In order to efficiently and effectively add engineering concepts to the curriculum, appropriate development and facilitation of engineering design challenges are required.…

Radloff, Jeffrey; Capobianco, Brenda; Dooley, Annie – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
This study examines the perspectives of three generations of elementary teachers learning to teach science using engineering design and the risks associated with implementing this innovative type of reform-based science instruction. Data were gathered using semi-structured interviews, classroom observations, and teacher reflections. Data analysis…

Chu, Lawrence; Sampson, Victor; Hutner, Todd L.; Rivale, Stephanie; Crawford, Richard H. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2019
The goal of this study was to examine how the use of a new instructional model is related to changes in middle school students' engineering identity. The intent of this instructional model, which is called argument-driven engineering (ADE), is to give students opportunities to design and critique solutions to meaningful problems using the core…
