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…

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…

Tolbert Smith, DeLean; Jones, Tamecia; Cardella, Monica E. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
A major concern in engineering education involves ensuring that youth belonging to minoritized groups have equitable access to engineering career pathways. Related research often highlights the effect of student and school characteristics on engineering success but few studies have investigated the engineering-related assets that Black families…

Wilson-Lopez, Amy; Acosta-Feliz, Jorge – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Multilingual students should have opportunities to learn and do engineering in learning environments that foreground and sustain their cultural and linguistic practices. However, little is known about how middle school engineering teachers enact these environments. To address this gap in research and practice, this comparative case study describes…

Pina, Jeremiah; Mazur, Rebecca; Ellis, Glenn; Rudnitsky, Al; McGinnis-Cavanaugh, Beth; Ellis, Sonia; Huff, Isabel; Ford, Crystal – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
This paper describes the development of two versions of an NGSS-aligned principles of engineering design unit for use in middle schools. By employing a narrative framework that can help students to connect more deeply with the human contexts and consequences of the engineering design process, our goal was to enhance students' cognitive and…

Cunningham, Christine M.; Kelly, Gregory J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
In this paper, we address the societally important issue of developing a more equitable approach to preK-12 engineering education. Our primary emphasis is on K-8 grades--a time when first impressions of engineering may be developed. Calls for increased participation by all students, including those who have been historically marginalized, motivate…

Lane, Tonisha B.; Vomvoridi-Ivanovic, Eugenia; Cain, Leia K.; Willis, Selene; Ahmad, Salam; Gaines, Jonathan – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
The societal disruptions due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are well noted, especially in the context of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Absent a concerted effort to sustain hands-on learning opportunities in STEM amid the crisis, the consequences of COVID-19 may exacerbate existing inequities and…

Clark, Abigail M.; Kajfez, Rachel – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2022
Despite years of recruitment efforts, women remain significantly underrepresented throughout engineering. While research into precollege engineering education has expanded, it has primarily focused on formal learning settings, even though students spend significantly more time outside of the classroom. The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything,…

Goldstein, Molly H.; Adams, Robin S.; Purzer, Senay – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Trade-off decisions, which necessitate striking a balance between two or more desirable but competing features, are a crucial part of design practice. However, they are known to be difficult for student designers to make. While designers, educators, and researchers have numerous methods to assess the quality of design artifacts, these methods are…

Holly, James, Jr. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Engineering educators must consider how the cultural backgrounds of students coincide (or diverge) with the epistemological and ontological formation of an engineer. Hence, this work is presented as an exhortation to engineering educators, particularly in a precollege context, to critically evaluate how race-conscious pedagogies can be exerted in…

Jordan, Michelle E.; Zuiker, Steve; Wakefield, Wendy; DeLaRosa, Mia – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
This study describes an illustrative case study from a year-round program that positions middle and high school youth to explore the social value of energy systems in their homes, schools, and neighborhoods. Designed to center existing youth assets, interests and values, Community Energy Engineering (CEE) frames engineering as a tool that students…

Calabrese Barton, Angela M.; Schenkel, Kathleen; Tan, Edna – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2021
Inequities in opportunities to learn and become in engineering, especially for minoritized youth, are enduring and systemic. How students experience engineering education, through curriculum, pedagogy, and teacher/student interactions, all shape opportunities for identity development. In this paper we draw upon cultural studies and critical…
