Kramer, Amy; Dringenberg, Emily; Morris, Carter; McCarthy, Darcy – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
The marginalization of women in engineering is a persistent problem. The overall goal of our collaborative project was to promote interest and participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), particularly for high school girls. We took an action research approach with a local high school science teacher to develop,…

Leak, Anne E.; Owens, Lindsay M.; Martin, Kelly Norris; Zwickl, Benjamin M. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
K-12 students need to become familiar with engineering because 21st-century careers integrate engineering practices across all science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. While the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize learning real science and engineering practices, further work is needed to authenticate…

Kozan, Kadir; Caskurlu, Secil; Guzey, Siddika Selcen – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Earlier integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education research has shown effects on students' attitudes toward STEM careers, actual and perceived learning, and interest in pursuing a STEM career in their future endeavors. The current systematic review purported to review the recent K-12 integrated STEM education…

Doganca Kucuk, Zerrin; Genek, Selvet Ece; Bozoglu, Hayriye Sinem; Corlu, Mehmet Sencer – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Teaching engineering at the middle and high school levels has been a topic of discussion among scholars regarding the challenges it creates. One of the most critical challenges at the school level is identifying qualified teaching staff to lead engineering courses. The present study explored teachers' willingness to lead an engineering course and…

Zhou, Shuqi; Merzdorf, Hillary E.; Douglas, Kerrie A.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
This study aimed to develop a K-12 classroom observation protocol to assess K-12 teachers' implementation of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) integration. The intended purpose of the observation protocol is for researchers to examine how K-12 teachers implement the STEM integrated curriculum. Based on research on STEM…

Alberto Esquinca; Maria Teresa de la Piedra; Lidia Herrera-Rocha – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Students classified as English language learners (ELLs), many of whom are also Hispanic/LatinĂ©/x, are at times excluded from opportunities to engage in engineering design experiences due to the emphasis on learning English. In dual language bilingual education, however, language policies that allow for the use and development of more than one…

Pilar Pazos; Francisco Cima Cohuo; Jennifer Kidd; Kristie Gutierrez; Krishnanand Kaipa; Orlando Ayala – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Global efforts are underway to include engineering in pre-college curricula. In the USA, this pursuit led to the inclusion of engineering content in the most recent version of the Next Generation Science Standards that guide K-12 science. As these standards become part of the K-12 curriculum, teachers face the challenge of gaining basic…

Kelli M. Paul; Karen Miel; Merredith D. Portsmore; Adam Maltese – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Engineering outreach programs often portray outreach educators as role models for youth. It is widely believed that introducing youth, especially girls, to potential engineering role models will broaden participation in engineering majors and careers. Based on interviews with and surveys of fourth- and fifth-grade girls participating in an…

Christine M. Cunningham; Gregory J. Kelly; Ashwin Mohan – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
Socially engaged engineering provides for student learning of the design, analysis, and practices of engineering as well as the ways that engineering is situated in sociocultural contexts. This paper provides a conceptual framework regarding socially engaged engineering for K-8 educators, researchers, and curriculum designers. The framework…

Timothy Robinson; Adam Kirn; Jenny Amos; Indira Chatterjee – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2023
This multi-methods study explores changes in engineering interest and identity of middle and high school students (n = 79) attending introductory-level engineering summer camps at a large western land grant university. Middle school is a critical time when student interest, identity, and subsequently career choice begin to emerge and hence it is…
